Petition Rebuild the economy out of lockdown with a Green New Deal
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Government has intervened in the economy in an unprecedented way.
The recovery must not simply reinstate 'business as usual' – Parliament must introduce a radical 10-year strategy for public investment to decarbonise the economy and eradicate inequality.
UK Parliament declared a Climate Emergency on 1 May 2019, but our emissions reduction efforts have so far fallen dangerously short.
The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted both the power of Government to make rapid changes to protect people, and the extreme costs of delay.
The economic lockdown, while painful for so many, has resulted in a significant cut in emissions.
We must rebuild from the Coronavirus tragedy with the economic and social renewal mapped out by the cross-party Green New Deal Bill.
