The Cambridge-based authors of the original handbook for the programme, Ro Randall, psychotherapist, and Andy Brown, consulting engineer, have written a new book, In Time for Tomorrow? in which they offer empathy, encouragement, and a practical path to anyone who feels concerned but lost, angry or powerless about climate change.

The Time to Act climate change march will bring people together on the streets of London to demand real change and tell politicians seeking election that there is no mandate for climate-wrecking business as usual.
Pedal on Parliament is returning for a fourth year to call on politicians in Scotland to increase the funding spent on cycling and walking as a form of transport.
We’ll be gathering at the Meadows from 11:30 am for a 12 noon start. The route will be no more than 1.5 miles and the pace will be slow enough for even the littlest legs, ending at the Parliament building where we promise to keep the speeches to a bare minimum.
On 14th and 15th February 2015, we’ll kickstart this important year of climate action by highlighting the things people love that are affected by global warming.
Grassroots climate events, organised by local people across Scotland focusing on the issues that matter to them, will help to firmly re-establish climate change as a priority with both the public and politicians. For this to be successful we need people all over Scotland to run events and stalls in their local area.
Disappointment is expressed at the lack of ambition and commitment in United Nations climate talks outcome. Increased public pressure is required to maintain and build upon domestic emission reductions and to push Governments to secure an appropriate deal in Paris next year.
Commenting on the conclusion of the UN climate talks in Lima, Sara Cowan on behalf of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland:
So, the talks are over, as is my time in Lima. It’s just a pity that I am unable to report a more positive outcome.
As is the norm at UN climate negotiations, the talks ran way over time - by a whole day and a half in the end. Many of the exhausted delegates and observers had begun to nod off as the gavel finally fell, just after one in the morning on Sunday.
The governments who gathered in Lima will want to say they had a success here, but the only real success is that they managed to settle on a deal at all.
