Call on UoG to declare Climate Emergency

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

In the last decade, we have seen an unfathomable trend - the earth is dying. Global temperatures rising by over 1 degree in the atmosphere have caused unprecedented wild fires and mass floods. In the UK, we have also seen the impact of climate change, with Nightingale populations dropping sharply alongside other native species.

The University of Greenwich heralds ourselves as “sustainability champions” yet we have no official statement declaring the emergency we face. In just 10 years or less, we will be past the tipping point - the point climate catastrophe becomes unavoidable and our impact as human beings on the planet, irreversible. 

Join us in calling on UoG to declare climate emergency alongside other UK universities, support the formation of a student-staff assembly, and take action to secure our futures.

A degree is no use when the world is on fire.
