Zero Hour is the campaign group behind the Climate and Ecology Bill. The Bill was first developed with members of the successful ‘Big Ask’ campaign which led to the Climate Change Act 2008, and is now led by a coalition of UK campaigners, world-leading scientists, academics and members of the public. The Climate and Ecology Bill was first introduced to Parliament in September 2020. The updated Bill was introduced in the House of Lords in June 2022.
The Climate and Ecology Bill has received backing from a wide range of supporters from different fields including Liz Bonin, Ben Fogle, Kumi Naidoo (Director, Greenpeace International, 2009-16); musician, Thom Yorke; environmentalist, Bill McKibben; Volans co-founder, John Elkington and actor-playwright Sir Mark Rylance.

We’re a small team of mostly volunteers, driven by a shared commitment to ensure that the UK Government delivers a serious climate-nature emergency strategy.
We’re also keen to hear from those who’d like to support the campaign, so please get in touch if you’re keen to volunteer for the Alliance—there are roles across every team, and we’re always growing.
