Climate change is one of the biggest threats that we face. Millions of people already face food and water shortages. Extreme weather events, flooding and droughts will displace populations and create conflict over resources. If we really want a safer world, we must cut carbon emissions fast.

Yet governments routinely put military spending before tackling climate change: The UK spends 25 times more on weapons research than research into renewable energy. 

Real security involves tackling the causes of problems, not creating more.

Join us for a creative action on Wednesday 9 September calling for a shift from Arms to Renewables and to demonstrate the kind of future we want to see. Bring creativity, energy, banners, flags & drums!

Speakers: John Stewart from Campaign Against Climate Change. John has been an environmental campaigner for over 30 years. He was centrally involved in the campaigns against road building in the 1980s and 1990s and the one million climate jobs campaign.

Workshop on Energy Democracy facilitated by Global Justice Now and Fuel Poverty Action
