CLIMATE EMERGENCY MEETING – Turn challenge into opportunity

Climate change is the greatest challenge of our times. It is vital that action is taken to avoid dangerous climate breakdown and damage to the natural world. Yet action also brings opportunities for: energy independence, unpolluted water and air, reversing wildlife decline, better health for humans, liveable towns and cities, and jobs created in sustainable technologies.

The meeting will include:
