#Think500YearsAhead - Last Chance to Sign Up

Tomorrow morning at 9:30am, I am hoping that thousands (if not millions) of people will see the following message on their social media feeds:

“I want MPs to put the natural world at the heart of decision making and #Think500YearsAhead not just 5 years ahead."

You can read all about the reasons behind setting up the Thunderclap on my blog here and on Mark Avery's blog here.  You can even watch a short video about why we need to think further ahead here.

This is my final call for help with making the Thunderclap a success.  As I write this blog post 671 people from all walks of life have signed up to the Thunderclap, and it has the potential to reach over 2 million people. These numbers are far bigger than I ever expected them to be, but they also encourage me to keep pushing for more and get the message spread as far and wide as possible.

You can sign up to the Thunderclap on Twitter or Facebook (or both if you have both). If you have more than one Twitter account, you can sign up on each of them. The more it gets tweeted, the better the chance of it trending tomorrow.

You can sign up by clicking here.

I am going to be in school all day, so I would be so grateful if you could share this post and encourage as many people as you can to sign up. 

On the 19th April, in the run up to 9:30am and for the rest of the day, would you think about tweeting/facebooking a message using the hashtag #Think500YearsAhead and giving a personal reason why it is important to think long term for the natural world. It would be great to see everyone's thoughts and ideas circulating round and being shared.

Thank you again for all your support.


  1. Good to see you still on the case but off to school now!! I have sighned up. Have a good week.

  2. What a great cause - the politicians here seem to be even more short sighted than in the UK - time scale is about 3 years!
