Coming soon

CLIMATE FESTIVAL

18th - 26th SEPTEMBER

EnCaf is supporting the national Climate Coalition’s nationwide Festival in September to highlight the emergency we are in and to put pressure on world leaders to take action.

 

In November (for COP26) world leaders will be meeting in Glasgow to decide the next steps to tackle climate change. This is probably the most critical meeting of the year. If we fail to agree a climate strategy this next November the future for our children and grandchildren will be very bleak.

NEXT FORUM MEETING

30th MARCH | 7pm - 8.30pm

Our next EnCaf forum meeting is on March 30th, and will be devoted to the September Climate Festival news, progress and planning. The last half hour will be our regular EnCaf business.

 

Plans for the Climate Action festival are coming on a pace.  There are now more than 40 indications of intent from all over the Borough. If you'd like to get involved - either in the planning or to contribute an event or item, please let us know. Don't forget to register for our next forum, to find out more. 

CLIMATE CENSUS

21st MARCH 2021

A new campaign ClimateCensus UK has been set up to use the official census on March 21st 2021 to send a message to government to take urgent action. There's a question in the census on religion where you can write in any answer; we are asking people to write 'Climate Concerned'. (In 2001 over 300,000 people answered "Jedi"!)

As the census is less than a month away (except in Scotland) please share in your networks as soon as possible. One way you can do this is to sign the pledge on the Climate Census website and share it.

We'll also devote part of our meeting to planning for the Climate Festival in September. Hope to see you there!

EnCaf Youth

EnCaf Youth joins efforts to influence COP26

Members of EnCaf Youth met at the end of February 2021 to discuss how they could influence the world summit C0P26 that is taking place in November this year.

Theo Sergiou from the Youth Parliament and a local Enfield resident explained that on March 3rd representative of young people will be meeting to decide on what their priorities are for the Summit - as young people had already indicated that their number one priority was climate change.

Theo asked Enfield Youth to be involved and come up with their recommendations. So there was an initial discussion and the focus was on incineration and its emissions that contribute to climate change and recycling. They will now be refining these into definite proposals.

On March 3rd the final list of all proposals will be determined and a petition they hope will reach over 25,000 young people will be launched for submission to Government. You can see Theo's presentation below.
