Birmingham

Do you drive to work or school? Do you sit in traffic every morning?
We are hoping to work with societies at the University of Birmingham, Friends of the Earth and Climate Action Network West Midlands to deliver an event in Birmingham in June/ July which will focus on air pollution, sustainable transport and climate change. More details to follow soon.

Cardiff

An event in June/ July based at the Welsh Assembly to discuss how representatives can tackle climate change at the different levels they work at, what more needs to happen to tackle climate change, and how members of the public can get involved.

Edinburgh:

63% of British adults believe the UK should be a world leader in climate mitigation and it will certainly affect everyone but do climate campaigns and campaigners represent the UK population as a whole? Is climate change a ‘middle class’ problem?
We are working with constituents in the internationally diverse Edinburgh East constituency for an event to discuss the accessibility and diversity of climate campaigning in September. More details to follow soon.
