Climate Day – Sheffield

10-4 / 20 May 2023 / Sheffield

Sheffield Unitarians invite you to their Climate Day! How might we respond effectively to Climate Change, not just as individuals but as groups and institutions?

Attendees from churches and other places of worship, and other community groups, particularly ones with responsibility for buildings, are most welcome.

Individuals welcome but small groups of trustees/committee members or similar ideal for taking learning (e.g. regarding building management and finance) back to your setting.

Opening address by Olivia Blake, Member of Parliament for Sheffield Hallam (and Shadow Minister for Climate Change until June 2022).

Keynote address by Professor Geoff Levermore (himself a Unitarian), Professor Emeritus, University of Manchester and a UK-nominated Lead Author, IPCC Climate Change Report 2007, for which he shared the Nobel Peace Prize.

Small Group Workshops by Matt Carmichael, co-author (with Alastair McIntosh) of “Spiritual Activism: Leadership As Service” and a teacher at Roundhay School, Leeds, where he spearheaded Declaration of Climate Crisis, and who also works, on a voluntary basis, with Leeds Climate Commission.
