What is “Supporting”?
Supporting a Thunderclap campaign is like signing a petition but with the added power of simultaneously sharing a message. You and every other supporter are standing up for an idea with the power of your voice.
How do I support?
Choose between your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to grant Thunderclap permission to post a message on your behalf. That’s it! If the campaign reaches its support goal by the deadline, Thunderclap will automatically post your message and all other supporters' messages at the same time.
A note on privacy
When you log into Thunderclap using your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account, you’re allowing our platform to share a single message on your behalf. That’s all. We use the absolute minimum permissions possible to post a message on your behalf. The platforms we integrate with sometimes include additional permissions that we do not use and we will not post anything from your friends' accounts.
In the coming weeks, the European Commission is scheduled to publish its conclusion on the so-called “fitness check” of the Nature Directives. So now is the time to remind Commissioner Vella, and his 27 Commissioner colleagues, that EU citizens believe the Directives are fit for purpose, and we want to see concrete action.
Once the “fitness check” is published, the Commission needs to work on a clear way forward – a proposal for full implementation of the laws. So join our Thunderclap on May 16th at 12.00; call on Vella to go from #NatureAlert to Action.
Last year the #NatureAlert campaign mobilised over 520,000 people to express their support for the Nature Directives. This was a powerful message to Vella and his team. In December, this was echoed by EU environment ministers meeting in Council, and then by the European Parliament in February. The ministers and Parliament both agreed full implementation of the Nature Directives is key to achieving the targets of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020.
So be #NatureAlert and support the call on May 16th!
May 12, 2016
Thanks to your support, the European Commission will hear loud and clear on 16 May that we all want the EU's nature laws to be protected and fully implemented!
Let them know we are all #NatureAlert by also supporting the Thunderclap actions of our partners:
