The Real Work Starts Now is an initiative for scientists, academics, and the education sector to significantly scale up participation in climate change, adaptation and ecological restoration.

Additionally, we seek to advance science, for example understanding how food impacts the climate and how innovations can help.

We aim to bring together universities, industry, and NGOs to join the major work of the great transition to global sustainability.



Lobbying UK universities, UUK and UKRI to support academics and students to become volunteers for climate mitigation, adaptation and ecological restoration. Read our open letter.

An Education Fit for the Future

The world that young people of today will inherit is changing more rapidly than ever. Education must adapt to anticipate the skills and knowledge that people will need for an uncertain and challenging future.

Scaling up mitigation, adaptation and restoration's goal is to help scale up the response to climate change and our damaged ecosystems. This means creating opportunities to add to the work of governments and private sector. We are building a database system to help make it easier for anyone to get involved in the largest project in the world - repairing our planet for future generations.

“We cannot be radical enough in dealing with these issues"
