Valentine's cupids turn green to promote climate change action
London commuters were greeted this week by teams of Green Cupids handing out kisses and Valentine’s cards all in the name of preventing climate change.
In the spirit of Valentine's Day (14 February), a recent survey for the Show The Love campaign revealed 25% of women say they would be less likely to start a relationship, and 23% say they would be less likely to even go on a date with someone who does not believe climate change should be tackled.
The survey also revealed that over two thirds of British adults (68%) want to see a strong policy on climate change from the party they plan to vote for come May. In fact more than one in four (28%) say they wouldn’t be able to back their choice of party without a strong policy on tackling climate change.
The Show the Love campaign is the initiative of The Climate Coalition, a group in the UK dedicated to climate change which aims to raise awareness on this important issue by asking people to watch and share a film , wear green hearts and post things they love that could be lost to climate change on their Twitter and Instagram, for example #London, #sandybeaches or #bees.
