SLACC-TT members at Global Divestment Day

Members of South Lakes Action on Climate Change – Towards Transition joined thousands of people across the globe on February 14th, calling on churches, universities, councils and individuals to divest from fossil fuels.

Global Divestment Day marks a turning point for the growing movement working to reduce investments in the fossil fuel industry, when more than a dozen new countries launched campaigns on new targets including South Africa, Japan and France. In the UK already, the Quaker movement is taking steps to divest from fossil fuels, as has University of Glasgow, with many more campaigns currently underway. See www.moveyourmoney.org.uk  and the Fossil Free UK campaign.

20’s Plenty

20’s plenty campaign, Kendal

20 limits are cheap, quick and easy to implement – even without traffic calming, they still deliver big safety benefits, and increased levels of walking and cycling!

  • 20 limits save lives, especially the lives of children and the elderly. We are campaigning for widespread 20 limits, not just around schools, as 80% of collisions involving children do not happen on the journey to or from school
  • 20 limits reduce pollution by smoothing stop-start traffic – in Germany, 18.6mph (30kph) limits reduced fuel consumption by 12%.       Kendal has serious traffic pollution problems
  • Collision reduction, improved fuel efficiency and reduced insurance premiums in 20mph postcodes reduce motoring costs – good for those currently without a choice not to drive
  • Safer roads encourage walking and cycling, making everyone healthier and happier – 20 limits are good for community life
  • 20 limits help to keep businesses alive with local customers. Small shops are better able to thrive, or at least compete with edge of town multinational retailersFor more information see :       20splentyforus.org.uk 20’s Plenty for Kendal on Twitter @20sPlentyKendal
