Residents and businesses across Sheffield Heeley are being encouraged to share their views and priorities about how to address climate change.
Louise Haigh MP for Sheffield Heeley is holding a Big Green Conversation event on Thursday 7 October at Meersbrook Hall from 6pm to 8pm.
At the event residents and businesses will be asked to share their views and priorities about how we can all work together to address the climate crisis. Residents are also being asked to pledge what changes they are making to their lives that will help address climate change. This can be anything from turning off the lights in rooms they’re not in, to walking, cycling or using public transport more often.

For too long climate change has been seen as tomorrow’s problem, something that will affect future generations. The truth is we are already seeing the devastating effects of climate change. In Sheffield we have seen businesses and communities affected by flooding, and across the globe we’re seeing more incidents of wildfires and extreme floods.
We must all play our part and take action now. In a matter of weeks, the UK will host COP26 which is the world’s opportunity to agree coordinated action to address climate change. I want to ensure that Sheffield residents and businesses views are also considered in this debate. That’s why I’m asking them directly what their priorities would be. I’m also asking them to pledge, what changes they are making in their lives to address this climate crisis.
If we all play our small part then we can all make a big difference.
