Global Climate Shrewsbury

4 December 2015

With the world’s eyes on Paris, people in Shropshire have lent their demands for our government and others to argue for a robust and challenging treaty to safeguard humanity from climate change.


On Saturday a larger than life polar bear attracted startled shoppers to consider the loss of ice habitats happening now. Members of Shrewsbury Green Party and Transition Town Shrewsbury talked to members of the public and more than 100 wrote personal messages for delivery to the UN Climate Conference.


About 60 Shrewsbury residents travelled to London early on Sunday to join the Global Climate March in London, one of thousands of events involving millions of people around the world which will be screened at the UN conference in front of delegates. Shrewsbury’s Climate Change messages will be taken to Paris from the London event.


The UN Climate Conference takes place over ten days and is being attended by Prime Minister Cameron and 195 other world leaders. Climate change is the biggest and most dangerous problem facing mankind today. For most people alive now global inaction is likely to lead to increasing weather disasters locally and abroad, and more people seeking refuge.
