Climate Change: Alton to London and Paris

The 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference is to be held in Paris between 30

November and 11 December this year. Its objective is "...to achieve, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, a binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world."

A major rally in support of these vital talks is being held in London on 29 November, along with events in cities all over the world.

Within Alton, a group of concerned individuals has come together under the title of Alton Climate Alliance, to plan an event in Alton between 11.00am and noon on the preceding day, Saturday 28 November. James Willis has been elected as the Alliance's Convenor.

We hope that Alton will thus be one town amongst many providing the team representing Britain at the Climate Change Conference with evidence that it will have overwhelming public support for effective action and face massive public disappointment if it fails.

As this is an issue which affects everyone, the aim is to make the Alton event as inclusive as possible — actively engaging people of all ages — and strictly non-party political.

Many of those attending will then travel to London on the following day to take part in the national rally.

We want to spread the word as widely as possible so that individuals and organisations can be involved.

On 30 September, beginning at 7.30pm, we will be holding an open meeting (at which all will be welcome) in the Assembly Rooms, Alton when the detailed plans will be finalised.

The purpose of this communication is to

 let you know that this is happening

 invite you to attend the meeting whether as an individual or organisation

 invite any ideas you may have for our event which will add to its effectiveness

To register support or get involved, please contact us at AltonClimateAlliance@Gmail.com

We want the Alton event to be fun but we also want it to reinforce the fact that climate change and these talks in Paris are critically important to this generation, future generations and our stewardship of the planet.
