Without urgent action, the climate crisis will radically reshape our planet leading to food shortages, the migration of millions of people and extinctions. The time to act is now.
That’s why we’re coming together as St Mary’s Walthamstow, Waltham Forest Citizens and London Citizens-affiliated institutions to get the climate crisis – the issue upon which all other issues depend – on the Citizens’ manifesto for the Mayoral Assembly, which is when the candidates for Mayor of London will face 6,000 of us at the Copper Box (Olympic Park) on 21st April 2020.
To get this urgent issue in the manifesto, we’re meeting as London Citizens (Citizens UK) on Tuesday 24th September 2019, 7-9pm, at St Mary Aldermary in the City of London (69 Watling Street, London EC4N 4SJ) as we discuss how to meet the challenge of the climate crisis and make London the most eco-friendly city in the world. We’ll provide free drinks and light refreshments, and we’ll have experts in climate change in attendance as well as leaders from across London who are prepared to organise around this issue.
We’ll need at least 50 people at St Mary Aldermary on Tuesday 24th September, with representation from four London boroughs and 10 different Citizens UK-member institutions in order to have a chance of getting this issue into our Citizens’ manifesto, which again will be presented to London’s mayoral candidates at the Copper Box.
If possible, please bring three other members from your Citizens-affiliated institution, or members from other London Citizens-affiliated institutions, on Tuesday 24th September as it will improve our chances of success. Tickets are free and available on our Eventbrite page here, which can also be found by going to Eventbrite and searching ‘London Citizens Climate Crisis Meeting’.
