XR East Herts Red Rebel Tony said: "Christmas and the New Year is a time not just to look back at the year gone by, but also look forward and ask how we can do better.
"In 2019, XR helped force climate justice on to the front pages and into a key issue for the 2019 General Election.
"But this is just the beginning. The clock is still ticking and we all need to do more to avert the climate crisis."
He added: "There are a lot of Environmental New Year Resolutions that everyone can make which add up to make a big difference."
