Show the love ... make a Green Heart - wear it, pin it, post it?
Updated: Mar 4
Have you noticed any green hearts 💚 – maybe badges on people’s coats, in shop windows or displayed in your local library, in your school or place of worship, in children’s news magazines or on the TV, in your neighbour’s window or a local cafe? Green hearts 💚 are popping up everywhere, lots of people are getting crafty and creative to show that they care about our planet. Together we can protect the world we love. Can you find time this week to make your own green heart? 💚 You could go outside and create a beautiful heart 💚 out of stones or leaves? Or maybe make a heart 💚 of green vegetables? Or a heart 💚 from green cardboard packaging or wrapping paper? Or of course, you could just make a ‘green’ ‘eco-friendly’ heart without using the colour ‘green’!! Make a heart 💚 from pictures of things you love and want to protect - birds, flowers, trees, animals, a wind turbine, a bicycle … we’re sure you’ll think of an idea … or check out The Climate Coalition website for some suggestions.
Pop your green heart 💚 in an envelope (or a photo if it doesn’t fit!) – and send it to your MP at ‘House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA. (Check here if you’re not sure who your Member of Parliament is). Why do you think actions taken by our governments to help us protect our environment are really important?. If you make more than one you could turn it into a badge, hang it from a tree, your kitchen window or in your classroom – wear it, pin it, post it? We’d love it if you could also email your photos to us – firstname.lastname@example.org or by HITTING THE RED BUTTON – or ask your parent/carer to share it on social media #showthelove, #youngclimatewarriors.
Why do you think actions taken by our governments to help us protect our environment are really important? Sending your own green heart to your MP – sends a personal message of care for our planet. The more they receive the more they know that we, as Young Climate Warriors, and many many others, all want to see real and rapid action to tackle climate change. You might like to watch this ‘Show the Love’ video – and even share it with your family and friends. Can you imagine your green heart joining the flock of hearts spreading across the UK, winging their way towards Westminster? #showthelove.
