Climate justice will be under the spotlight as Hereford joins the global day of action around COP26 – the world climate summit being held in Glasgow, on 6 Nov.
Herefordshire Friends of the Earth are calling for local groups to join the event which aims to unite all climate activists and groups around a common goal: to demand that governments and corporations limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C and deliver real and just solutions to the climate crisis.
Events will start at noon in Hereford’s High Town in solidarity with cities around the world which will be calling for stronger and focussed action on climate breakdown. Herefordshire has its own recent experiences to add to the list of climate related disasters that are causing havoc around the world and the event will give people the opportunity to relate their experiences to others.
Ruth Stanier from Herefordshire Friends of the Earth said:
‘Of course the pandemic may impact some people’s ability or wish to take part. We shall have to do what feels most comfortable and follow all COVID measures in place on the day. There are many ways to get involved in the day. The COP26 Coalition is calling on organisations and networks to help make the demonstrations happen.’
