Brentwood Climate Action will be out on the high streets in Brentwood and Ingatestone this coming Saturday, November 6, as part of the Global Day of Action.
Taking place on the middle Saturday of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, the Global Day of Action features a series of grassroots-organised events right across the country. The purpose of the Global Day of Action is to unite all climate activists and climate groups nationwide around a common goal: to demand governments and corporations limit global temperatures to 1.5°C and deliver real and just solutions to the climate crisis.
Brentwood Climate Action members will be out at sites on Brentwood High Street (10am-4pm) – by the Chapel Ruins outside The Baytree Centre – and on Ingatestone High Street (at the bus shelter in the Market Place, 10am-noon), to raise awareness of COP26 and the Climate Emergency, and promote the ongoing work of Brentwood Climate Action and how it can make a difference locally.
Come along and see us and you’ll be able to sign our petition calling on Brentwood Borough Council to declare a climate emergency, talk to us about signing up as a member of Brentwood Climate Action – and understand more about us a group and why we formed earlier this year.
We will also have informative leaflets to take away, and some fun materials for kids to take, supplied by Friends of the Earth.
If any Brentwood Climate Action members can spare half an hour or more between 10am and 4pm to help out in Brentwood please contact us as soon as possible.
