Online Conference – The Climate & Ecological Emergency: Taking Action Together

Fri 13 Nov 2020 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM STOP PRESS: We received info about this event too late for our Friday newsletter edition – but our daily readers will have seen it. We are hoping to be able to post links to recorded sessions soon.

Has your organisation declared a Climate (and Ecological) Emergency, committing to radically reduce its emissions and improve biodiversity by 2030? Are you a concerned activist or organisation focussed on ensuring the necessary climate action is taken in your locality?
