Stop Climate Chaos

Join the African Climate Connection in Wales!

African Climate Connection

26 November - 3 December

During the first week of the UN Climate talks in Durban, South Africa at the end of November, grassroots groups will connect with each other and with the climate talks at African-themed events around the UK.

To get involved in Wales, get in touch with Rachel McCarthy, the Welsh Mobiliser:, or check out the Stop Climate Chaos Cymru website.

Over the past year, as part of the Big Climate Connection and Reconnection, local groups around the country have been building up connections with each other through lobbying their MPs.

The movement is continuing to grow. We need many more people from all walks of life to get involved and keep the pressure up. And we need to show our MPs we’ll hold them to account.

Get involved with the African Climate Connection, build local connections in your area and show MPs the strength of local concern about climate change.

See what we're calling for at the Durban climate talks this Autumn
