LAUNCH: Notts COP26 Coalition, Thurs 16 September 7pm St Peter’s Church*, Nottingham
You and members of your organisation are warmly invited to join a launch event to bring people together in the run up to Nottingham’s COP26 day of action on November 6.
You will hear from global and local speakers about why climate justice urgently matters to us all, including
- Mary-Lou Malig, Bolivia-based activist researcher, and campaigner for economic justice
- Sally Longford, deputy leader of Nottingham City Council with responsibility for the environment
- Dena Arya, an expert on environmental politics at Nottingham Trent University
But most of all, we want to hear from YOU at the launch, as we build a local campaign to demand climate justice – at home and abroad – and hold politicians to account.
We need your expertise, your knowledge and your voice. Please join us.
In November, world leaders converge on Glasgow for COP26 and here in Nottingham we are a regional hub for the COP26 Coalition.
We are coordinating activities in the weeks running up to November 6, with regular Zoom meetings every Thursday evening (please email us to join- we want you!) Here are our two main aims:
- organising to fill Nottingham city centre on Saturday November 6th as part of one of the biggest nationwide protests ever
- building a continuing local campaign of coherent political demands (e.g. a charter) for climate justice from the grassroots.
Please forward this email to your networks far and wide throughout Notts and beyond. We want to build a broad coalition. If your organisation is not listed below, let us know, and we will add you!

September 16 venue: St Peter’s Church, *St Peter’s Square, NG1 2NW Nottingham.
