Stop Climate Chaos Cymru will be at the Riverside Farmer’s market in Cardiff on Sunday to talk about their latest campaign on climate change ahead of the Assembly elections in May.
A coalition of 14 influential Welsh organisations drawn from environment and development groups, faith groups, women’s groups, trade unions and others, SCCCymru is asking all candidates in the coming elections to support action to tackle climate change in the next Assembly Government.
The Cardiff Business School has produced research showing that the Assembly can cut carbon and create jobs with a nationwide programme of home energy efficiency, by promoting smarter travel choices, and by providing the training so people in Wales can benefit from the green economy. This election is an opportunity to let Assembly candidates know that their voters care about climate change and would like to see them support these proposals.
It is now possible for any-one in Wales to enter their post-code into the Candidate View-Finder (above) and find out what their candidates think of the campaign, and what their thoughts are on climate change. Then, with the click of a button, people can directly contact their candidate by email or on Twitter and let them know what they think.
Louise Weinzweig, a climate activist organising Sunday’s stand says,
“People who come along to the stand on Sunday can use the Candidate View-Finder, pick up material on climate change activism, & find out more about the campaign.
I’m pretty excited that we’re helping people communicate directly with their Assembly candidates and hope that Sunday will be a good opportunity to talk about our campaign.”
