We delivered 2,000 #Postcards2Paris – with over 1800 messages from local school children from 30 schools -from St Albans to the Paris Climate Change Conference in Paris on 8th December 2015.
They were handed over by Mike Wilkins, a local resident, to Lord Bourne Minister for Energy and Climate Change. Over 1800 schoolchildren wrote their messages directly to Amber Rudd the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change .
St Albans District schoolchildren are writing 1,000 cards and we are asking residents to complete another 1,000! Pick up your Postcard to Paris at our St Albans market stalls on Sat 7th Nov and Sun 15th Nov.
At the conference leaders will try and agree on how to stop dangerous global warming caused by human activity. They are trying to get agreement to reduce carbon emissions to limit the global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius. We have arranged to deliver your cards personally to the Right Hon Amber Rudd MP, the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.

Get any postcard you have around the house, or pick up one of our special Postcards to Paris at our market stalls on 7th and 15th November and events during the week.
One one side write your message to the UK rep. You might want to start: ‘I care about the climate because…’ or ‘Please act NOW to stop climate change because…’
Step 2: Please write your name and address at the bottom of your card.
We will take all the cards to Paris, so just address it to ‘Amber Rudd MP, Paris Climate Change Summit, Paris’.
