We've had a superb afternoon volunteering with Ed Miliband who's now a fully fledged member of BTCV's Carbon Army. Ed joined volunteers at Buntings Wood in Thorne to plant Scots pine and birch trees. Ed travels to Copenhagen in the next few days but had great things to say about BTCV and our Carbon Army campaign.
Here's what Ed had to say: “The UK has the most ambitious emissions reduction commitments in the world and with projects like BTCV’s Carbon Army, the UK is well placed to show it is taking action at a community level to combat climate change.
"The Carbon Army gives people a great opportunity to get involved in their community and take local action on climate change. With the Copenhagen summit now upon us, BTCV’s Carbon Army can help show how Britain is serious about cleaning up the environment and tackling climate change.”
