Climate change is hotting up, with 2023 set to be the warmest year ever recorded. What can we do to prepare ourselves for more frequent extreme weather events? This year, Show the Love is especially important in the run up to the General Election, and is your opportunity to find out what climate policies we need to protect us and for our prospective Parliamentary candidates to put forward. We can also put together a list of question to ask them if we get an opportunity.
Non members welcome
