On Saturday 5 November 2022, community groups, residents and local organisations came together at the Town Hall in Leamington to inspire and lead the way in taking local action on climate change.

Our COP27 event, held the day before the beginning of COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt, featured talks and presentations from several local community groups and organisations that have led the way in reducing the climate impact in their local community, including:

  • Kenilworth All Together Greener
  • Low Carbon Warwickshire
  • Bar Zero Barford
  • Heart of England Forest
  • Warwickshire Climate Alliance
  • Warwickshire County Council
  • Warwick District Council's Climate Change Team
  • Harbury Energy Initiative
  • Low Carbon Warwickshire Network
  • South Warwickshire Climate Champions

The event was recorded and is available to watch below, and the presentation slides can be downloaded from our website.

Local environmental poet Matt Black attended the COP27 event, and wrote the following poem based on his experience.
