Climate Week Best Campaign 2012

Caroline Lucas MP

MP (Green Party, Brighton Pavilion)

"I am very happy to be supporting the Close the Door campaign which encourages shops to save money and carbon emissions just by closing their doors. Research from the Cambridge University proves that closing shop doors in winter reduces energy usage and carbon emissions by up to 50%. I am delighted that the campaign's first group of school pupils is from Patcham High School in Brighton. This is a wonderful example of how young people can engage with their local community to bring about change for the better."
