What is 'Ring the Changes'?

The Irish Stop Climate Chaos coalition, of which Friends of the Earth is a member, are running a 'Ring the Changes' activity across the country to highlight that the time for urgent action is now. With just 12 months to go until a global deal must be reached, more needs to be done, especially by governments, to ensure real progress is made in the fight against climate change. People throughout Ireland will ring bells in their communities to ensure Ireland plays its part in preventing runaway climate change.

What can you do?

Help ring in the changes to Stop Climate Chaos! We will provide you with bells, leaflets, posters and information to run your own event in your local area. You can ring the bells outside you church, the local shop, community centre, or wherever there are people really-even if you ring your bell on your own doorstep you will be contributing to the campaign! Any bell will do - even your mobile phone!
