About this Event
To save our planet we need to act NOW to combat climate change, and in a way that is fair to everyone. People in the global south have done the least damage to the climate but are already suffering its effects, and we must find ways to combat climate change that do not worsen inequality.
Come and listen to our lineup of diverse speakers, and give us your views on what urgent action we need to take in the runup to COP 26 in November.
Mary Lou Malig, an activist researcher, policy analyst, and campaigner based in Bolivia, will give us a perspective from the global south.
Alice Bayes from youth-led, diverse action group Climate Action Nottingham, will talk about their campaigning on pension fund divestment from fossil fuels, the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill, and biodiversity.
Kat Boettge from the Green Party, who has stood as its candidate in EU and general elections, will talk about the Green Party’s approach and the Green New Deal.
A speaker from the COP 26 Coalition (tbc) will address what we want from COP 26 and mobilising NOW to achieve it.
