Many of you will be aware that Phil Thornhill has resigned as the Coordinator of the Campaign against Climate Change. Phil’s contribution has been immense. He founded the Campaign 12 years ago and it became a major player in putting climate change on both the UK political agenda and in the forefront of activists’ minds.
Phil has now decided to step down from the Campaign. We want to thank him for all the selfless work he has done. We and his many friends hope he will stay involved in climate change issues in some way.
The Steering Group is working on its annual strategy and planning for the coming
. We will be presenting our proposals to the Campaign’s members at our AGM, set provisionally for Saturday, 2nd March and will be inviting you to submit any resolutions early in the New Year (details to follow).
As usual we will elect a new Steering Group at the AGM and always welcome new committed members if you wish to consider standing. We have arranged for the office to be fully staffed from now until the AGM at which point new positions will be advertised.
We hope you can join us at the Climate Bloc action (see link here) outside Parliament from 5.30pm this Wednesday, 19th December to make a noise for an energy system that serves the people and the planet and to oppose the disastrous Energy Bill.
Finally our seasonal greetings go out to you and your families this Christmas as we look forward to an enlightened New Year.
