Stop the Great Nature Sale


21 November 2013

During the next 2 days, the UN is hosting an international conference in Edinburgh to put a price on nature.

Under the guise of sustainability, big business wants to turn air, water and biodiversity into commodities that can be traded for profit. This will result in increased exploitation of natural resources instead of protecting them.

You can help us make sure that make sure that the delegates at the conference hear loud and clear that nature is #notforsale.
