Wales Climate Week 2023 takes place December 4-8 and it offers us an opportunity to hold a national conversation on climate change.
The theme is one of the most important questions facing our society today…how do we tackle climate change in a fair way?
Wales Climate Week 2023 will feature a 5-day virtual conference examining the impacts of climate change on different people, groups, organisations and places, and will explore how the benefits associated with new climate policies are distributed fairly across society.
Alongside the conference, a series of climate conversations will be held across Wales to involve community groups and members of the public in exploring the links between solutions for tackling climate change and the cost-of-living crisis.
The aim of these conversations will be to encourage national, regional and local conversations with community groups, individuals, employed and self-employed workers throughout Wales on how we can tackle climate change in a fair way.
The website also explains how to submit an expression of interest to host a session during the virtual conference or to hold a Climate Conversation event involving communities and individuals in conversations on climate change. Climate Conversations can be held any time between December 4, 2023 and January 31, 2024, with Welsh Government funding available to successful applicants.
Cllr David A Bithell, Deputy Leader and Climate Champion, said: “Wales Climate Week 2023 is an opportunity to look at creating solutions to the many problems we’re facing around climate change. We’ve always stressed that tackling these problems will take a team effort and it’s a chance to be around other people who want to make a meaningful difference. Please try to take part in whatever way you can.”
