Join the COP26 Coalition lobby of West Midlands Combined Authority Board meeting, Wolverhampton Civic Hall this Friday 19 Nov 10:30

People from around the region will present this petition to Mayor Andy Street https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/zero-carbon calling on the regional authority and all local councils and businesses to move rapidly to zero carbon policies.

Please sign the online petition and share with your own networks. We need to send the strongest possible message that current policies and plans are totally inadequate to deal with the climate emergency.

We demand immediate drastic cuts in carbon emissions and a more open and accountable body to make decisions on this crucial issue which affects everyone in our region.

At present the WMCA has an Environment and Energy Board to deal with climate issues. It consists only of 8 councillors plus  representatives of the Birmingham and Solihull LEP and the Environment Agency. We call for a Climate Forum, meeting regularly, with representatives of climate campaigns and trade unions across the West Midlands, to hold the Combined Authority to account.

Assemble outside the Civic Centre, St Peter’s Square, Wolverhampton WV1 1SH at 10:30am. Bring placards and anything to make a noise.
