Internet Surfers! Get on board with The Wave!

Do you see what I did there? Clever Badger.

You might have noticed there haven’t been any posts for a while – really sorry about that. I’ve been busy helping Tearfund prepare for The Wave on the 5th December!

What do you mean you don’t know what The Wave is?!

The Wave will be the UK’s biggest ever demonstration for action on climate change. Tens of thousands of people marching through the streets of London to demonstrate their support for climate justice and calling on the UK government to protect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities from the changing climate. The march is happening ahead of the UN climate talks start in Copenhagen, where world leaders must seal a strong and fair deal. We need to get the attention of the people in power who can make a difference in these talks, hence the attention-seeking ‘wave’!

Here’s how it will go down on the day:

11am
Church service at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster 

1pm
March starts in Grosvenor Square. Those in the church service will walk together to join the march

3pm
Encircling of parliament following by tea and cakes with Tearfund (venue tbc)

Wear or carry something blue to make The Wave look special.
