SCACC, the organisation that hosts Sheffield Climate Alliance, has its AGM on Tuesday 17 October 7-9pm, at Quaker Meeting House. All are welcome to come along and help us elect committee members, hear a report on activities and finances, and then enjoy our speaker panel and discussion about the role of public sector institutions in Sheffield in tackling climate change.
If you would like to be nominated for our committee, use this form to tell us in 50 words about yourself and what you can offer (or to ask any questions) – please send this by 10 October, thanks!
The programme for the evening is:
6.40pm – doors open and teas/coffees available for £1
7pm – the AGM starts in the Main Meeting Room (no drinks to be taken in) – reports, committee elections (note we will not take nominations on the evening). Reports and nominations will be posted here one week ahead of the meeting.
7.30pm – our speaker panel will set the scene of how public bodies in Sheffield (such as the Council, Universities and Health Service) can help build a low-carbon future in Sheffield. Followed by questions and discussion. For some background, see our report on how climate jobs can help achieve prosperity and wellbeing in our region. Speakers will include Councillor Jack Scott, lead on Transport and Sustainability at Sheffield City Council, and Professor Heather Campbell of the University of Sheffield’s school of Urban Studies and Planning, plus Health speaker (to be confirmed).
8.45pm Speaker meeting concludes with a collection for SCA funds (or sign up for matched online giving), and the chance to network (and continue in a local pub if you fancy!)
We really hope you can join us!
