Here at Sheffield Climate Alliance we want our elected leaders to understand and act effectively on climate change, with justice, now! In 2016 we first took part in Speak Up, the Climate Coalition’s lobby of MPs, and we are now regularly meeting 5 out of 6 Sheffield MPs.
In 2015, we were part of the Time to Act national campaign and lobby of MPs on climate. We sent our message to the Paris climate talks through ‘Time for the Climate’ here in Sheffield and the People’s March for Climate, Justice and Jobs in London.
We have also been persistent in ensuring all elected Sheffield City Council Councillors are asked the climate question, and keeping up pressure on Cabinet members.
