Over the last few months our work on the Energy Revolution campaign has gone from strength to strength.
With the UK lagging well behind many other European countries in the amount of energy we produce from renewable sources, Friends of the Earth is pushing for massive government investment in wind, wave and solar power.
The Energy Revolution aims to show the widespread support for this by asking businesses and organisations to sign a postcard to their MP in support of more renewable energy. The uptake has been fantastic.
We've collected dozens of postcards from student groups, faith communities, campaign organisations and businesses and not just from Birmingham. Thanks to a number of conferences and big events in the city, we've also been able to sign up organisations from across the UK. Below are some of the organisations that have signed up; if you would like to sign up your company or organisation, please get in touch with Ben at email@example.com
