International Development - Show the Love!
published on 9 Feb 2016
We can protect the people, places and things we love.
This Valentine's Day thousands of people across the country are stitching, knitting, painting and baking beautiful green hearts to show the love for all they want to protect from climate change.
So much that we love could be affected by climate change, from bees to beaches to our sisters and brothers far and wide. All of creation is under threat.
We can do something about it. 100% clean energy within a generation is possible – if enough of us show we care and want to make it happen.
Make, wear and share your green heart in the run-up to this Valentine’s Day
Draw it, stitch it, grow it, bake it, fold it – whatever you do, do it with love!
Hand-crafting a heart is a beautiful way to begin a conversation about the things we love that climate change threatens, and the clean energy we need to protect our world.
