Just Transition Wakefield spent the weekend of August 14th and 15th at the Clarence Park Aftershock Festival, organised by Wakefield Music collection. We were there to talk to anyone and everyone about the climate – hearing their worries and offering suggestions for action. In particular, we were asking people to write to their MP about COP26, demanding real progress and urgent climate action at the UN Climate Conference. You can download our leaflet and a template letter from the links embedded in the text.
We talked to so many people over the weekend, and have never been at an event where everyody was interested in and concerned about what we were saying. It is startlingly clear that a combination of a summer of global climate breakdown and the IPCC report published earlier in the month have really hit home with people.
If you are as concerned as the people we spoke to at the festival, please, read the leaflet and write to your MP!
