Climate Change

TCC members are looking at how we can organise around climate change. From exploring divestment to reducing meat consumption, this is a broad and important issue that affects everyone. 

In November, to coincide with CoP26 taking place in Glasgow, the climate issue group took part in a global day of local climate action to demonstrate that people in North East Wales are concerned about the climate and care about the planet. 

The group organised a Women's Climate Strike in Wrexham on International Women's Day, and planned a social media series of Climate Stories to share how the climate crisis is affecting communities and what they are doing about it.

Read on to find out more about the action being taken by TCC leaders.
