The Letters from the Global South exhibition is coming to All Saints Church and Footsteps is taking the opportunity to explore how the exhibition and the Climate and Ecology Bill can inspire local action.

Come to find out how you can make a difference to the climate and biodiversity crisis we face by taking simple actions. Gain ideas and inspiration from the exhibition, the speakers and your fellow attendees!

Letters from the Global South is a pop-up exhibition that features letters and images created by schoolchildren and campaigners from communities around the world, particularly those vulnerable to the climate & nature crises.

The Climate and Ecology Bill is a plan for a new UK law that addresses the full extent of the climate and nature crisis in line with the most up-to-date science. The Bill is the only proposed legislation before the UK Parliament that ensures a comprehensive and joined-up approach to climate change.
