Speak up for nature!

One thing we can all do about climate change is to make our voice heard by those in power. For example, by writing to our MPs to let them know that action on climate change is important for us. At Audlem's Climate and Nature Event on Saturday, 18 September, there will be several opportunities to make your voice heard.

The event takes place between 10 am and 4 pm, but between 10.30 am and 12 noon you have an opportunity to talk about climate and nature issues with local decision-makers and experts. Come and meet:

  • Dez Winskill, Vice-Chair, Audlem Parish Council.
  • Rachel Bailey, Audlem Ward Councillor, Cheshire East Council.
  • Quentin Abel, Climate Champion and Vice-Chair Environment and Waste Committee, Cheshire East Council.
  • Suzie Akers-Smith, Walking and Cycling Champion, Cheshire East Council.
  • Dr Sharon George, Researcher and Lecturer in Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology, Keele University.

You will be able to have your say about the climate actions you think Audlem Parish Council should prioritise locally. Partly inspired by Cheshire East's Carbon Toolkit, the Audlem Carbon Emissions Reduction (ACER) project team have suggested such as installing electric vehicle charging points, improved walking and cycling provision, and rewilding the verges. But what are your top three priorities? Come and have your say.

You will also be able to sign a petition calling on leaders at the COP26 climate summit to commit to urgent actions now to prevent runaway climate change destroying our children's lives.

Finally, you will be able to have your say about climate action in Audlem and the ACER project by responding to a questionnaire designed with the help of Keele University Masters student Matthew Woodward.

Pop along to the Buttermarket on Saturday to speak up for nature and make your voice heard by those in power!

Help Audlem in the fight against climate change.

Make a better future for our children.
