Big Green Climate Festival: Bambos Charalambous MP and Kate Osamor MP discuss COP26

Barnet & Southgate College (Southgate Campus), High Street, N14 6BS  

Two of our local Members of Parliament, Bambos Charalambous MP and Kate Osamor MP, will be joined by Fiona Dear from the Climate Coalition to talk about the climate emergency and what must be urgently done.

This meeting, organised by Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCaf), is kindly hosted by Barnet and Southgate College and Enterprise Enfield.

Climate change is accelerating faster than expected. If we don't take action to limit temperature increase to 1.5% by the end of the century, we face disastrous consequences both in the UK and globally. Soaring temperatures, flooding, sea level rises and population displacement will increase. We're looking at societal collapse and a threat to public health.

With world leaders meeting in November at COP26, we must ensure they act to make a difference. Fiona Dear will explain what the Climate Coalition believes should be done. And we look forward to hearing from our MPs and finding out what they intend to do.

We will also hear from Enterprise Enfield. And EnCaf is very grateful for their support of this event.

Places are strictly limited and access will only be allowed on production of a printed Eventbrite ticket at the College security hut. We regret that we cannot allow anyone without a ticket to enter

Joining together to call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.

The Great Big Green Week will be largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too.

Nationwide, the Great Big Green Week is being coordinated by the Climate Coalition. Locally, we will be holding Enfield's Great Big Green Climate Festival, coordinated by the Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCAF). EnCAF harnesses the expertise and energy of more than 80 different groups from around the borough. There will be walks, talks, an apple day, a food festival, a chance to try a bicycle or tricycle, a guided bike ride touring Enfield's wetlands, online events and an all-day fair - bringing concerned people together and celebrating our potential for joint action.
