A one-day conference at Bloomsbury Baptist Church, 235 Shaftesbury Avenue, for those looking to act on the climate emergency. Come along and find out what your council and community can do, bring along your ideas and learn from others how we can shift to a zero carbon economy and keep fossil fuels in the ground. What scale of change do we need?  What would the benefits be for jobs and local economies?
