After the Big One… what next?

More than 60,000 people descended on the streets of Westminster for The Big One, a four-day protest which created a safe, non-disruptive and collaborative space for many groups and movements to come together and build a more united approach to demanding government action.

The largest environmental protest in UK history was seemingly ignored by the Government, and largely dismissed by the mainstream media. Over the next few months we will decide how to translate the appetite for action we saw at The Big One into movement building and campaigns over the months ahead to help create a critical mass of the population that the government will be simply unable to ignore. If you’d like to be part of that discussion, please get involved!
