Show The Love 2017
Last year hundreds of thousands of people across the UK showed their love for the people, places and life they want to protect from climate change. This year it’s going to be even bigger!
Let’s get creative about climate change!
Join schools across the country in learning about the everyday things we love that are affected by climate change, creating green hearts to celebrate the things we want to protect, and then showing this off to the rest of your community by displaying them on your favourite tree.
The most beautiful, creative and thought provoking photos of heart covered trees will win a special prize.
These powerful displays of love will help us show how much every single person cares about climate change. We want this to get people talking about how we can protect what we love from climate change. And we’ll make sure that love is felt by the people that can make a world of difference.
The Schools Activity Pack will be available to download from 2 November and will include lots of curriculum-linked lesson activities, assembly ideas and activities to make this a memorable activity for Early Years, KS1 and KS2 children.

Climate March 2015
On the weekend of 28 & 29 November, the world came together to take a stand! Over half a million people marched together on the eve of the global climate talks in Paris to tell world leaders that now’s the time for climate action. In both London and Edinburgh, Salvationists took to the streets to march for what they love and show world leaders that they want to see a strong climate deal!
More than 50,000 people gathered for the London march, making it the largest climate demonstration the UK has ever seen! One of 2,500 climate action events taking place globally, it was second in size only to Australia where more 60,000 are reported to have gathered. Find out what happened in London and get a flavour of the incredible day by reading The Climate Coalition's round-up.
