  • Save our Ambulance
    10/07/14 -Great News! North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust have suspended their proposals to reduce Ambulance cover on nights in Carlisle and the Rapid Response Vehicle RRV in Penrith on nights as part of a cost improvement plan. Indeed they have decided to suspend all frontline service cuts throughout all of the North West. The reason is that NWAS have received additional monies that is non-recurrent but will cover the cost of reducing frontline services for this year. Our campaign has therefore been successful but will continue again next year if NWAS decide to adopt similar proposals. Our petition was presented at No 10 Downing Street last week and totalled 11,500 signatures which included this online petition. Thank you for you support. Read more

  • Stop the MOD from building at Stonehenge, resulting in blocking out the sunrise
    CAMPAIGN UPDATE: 38 Degrees have received an email from the MOD saying "If the areas being considered for housing development North East of Stonehenge were to be selected, the detailed designs would ensure that there was no adverse impact on the view of the sunrise at the stone circle. We are consulting with English Heritage, they are advising on the approach UNESCO would be likely to take (as they designate World Heritage sites)."

  • Michael Gove: Don't scrap climate change education
    Brilliant news - Michael Gove has abandoned his plans to drop climate change from the curriculum! And the papers are reporting that it was the “widespread support” for our campaign that persuaded him to change his mind. As a teacher, it means so much to me to know that young people will have the opportunity to understand climate change and how it will affect their lives. It’s only by educating children about what their future will look like that we can give them the chance to shape it for the better. The outpouring of support for our campaign was incredible. More than 37,000 of us came together with campaigners from the UK Youth Climate Coalition and People & Planet. We signed petitions, wrote letters and took our campaign right to Gove’s Department for Education. Thank you so much to everyone who stood with me to do this. It couldn’t have happened without you.
