November News 2022

19 November 2022  |  by Helen Frederick

This month has seen the COP27 international climate summit. The world leaders have failed to take meaningful action- for the 27th time.  But the voices of those on the front line of climate breakdown, suffering mass famine, flood, rising tides, water borne disease and persecution have been heard clearly in global media, some of them for the first time. Our SEA community has supported those voices as part of the Global Climate Justice Coalition Day of Action too.  Read Jess’s article about our march in Brighton on 12 November.

Join our free online Climate Action Workshop

This online workshop on Wednesday 30 November at 7.30pm will use climate simulation models to explore different scenarios for reducing emissions of greenhouse gas and reach net zero. Sounds good? That’s because it is! You’ll work in a group to try possible strategies and then ‘run’ the simulations in real-time to discover how well your strategies might work. We are very fortunate to have Dr David Faraday from What Next? Climate Emergency Centres to guide us through these climate simulations
