Coalition for Climate Action collecting signatures for petition to be handed in to Government after protest march

The Coalition for Climate Action has been collecting signatures for a petition that will be handed in to the Government after a protest march on the 20th of September in support of a 'Parents for Future-Climate Change strike.

The Coalition for Climate Action is made up of the Environmental Safety Group, the Nautilus Project, the Ornithological & Natural History Society, The Heritage Trust, Pollution Watch and Sustainable Gibraltar.

The coalition calls for the setting-up of an independent Climate Body to ensure that Gibraltar meets its carbon responsibilities. This body should report to Parliament and the community, acting as a watchdog to monitor Gibraltar’s progress with regard to its commitments. It says it can only be effective with cross-party and cross-community support and engagement.
