Climate change: November events

In the lead up to the United Nations summit on climate change (COP21) starting at the end of November, we have a series of events happening in Southampton. If climate change is to be addressed, this means actions happening at the local level. The ‘business as usual’ approach is not sustainable.

Friday 27th November at 6pm, will see an event hosted by the University of Southampton at Highfield campus. James Dyke will be leading discussion and speakers include Alan Whitehead MP and local filmmaker Paul Maple will be screening his new film the Environmental Litmus Test. Local community organisations involved in actions to combat climate change will be involved. If you wish to be part of this event, please email More details here.

Sunday 29th November at 1pm, Southampton will have its largest ever Climate Change demonstration organised by the people for the people. You can join the Facebook event or sign up via

Earlier on in the month, we also hosted a The Wisdom to Survive film night, watching this powerful film about how we respond to climate change. If you are interested in climate change films, you may also wish to visit the Ethical Film Club on 28th November at 2pm in Brockenhurst for their screening of The Future of Energy.

Please join in the local movement for global change. Contact us if you have other ideas or know of other events that we ought to be promoting here too. Feel free to tweet to us @ideas_soton or with hashtag #sotonclimate
