Members of High Peak Green New Deal are urging support for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, in response to this week's report about the state of the climate.
They add that although the government is currently talking about ambitious targets, 'many of its actions actually increase our emissions'.
Peter Allen, a spokesperson for the group, commented: "If Parliament could pass this bill it would make such a difference. At the moment, it has support from all parties except the Conservatives. It was drafted by scientists, legal experts and environmentalists and is designed specifically to reverse the climate and ecological breakdown we're facing."
High Peak Borough Council has already passed a motion in support of the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, while High Peak Green New Deal say it is planning a public meeting to 'gather broad support for the Bill' in September.
