UPDATE: Whats Stopping Us From Stopping Climate Change

On 28th September, hundreds of people attended the event held by the Surrey Climate Commission and heard Natalie Bennett, Ed Straw, and Lord Deben share their thoughts on what’s stopping action on climate change and what can we do about it.

Over 100 attendees have signed up for the follow-up workshops day, to hear more from experts, and to co-design an initiative to influence change across Surrey.
