Stroud Vigil for the Planet
By Sarah Wood | 25th October 2021
Stroud residents and businesses of all political persuasions will be joining a Vigil for the Planet in the town on November 6.
It will take place from 12-12.30pm on the corner of High Street and Kendrick Street. Organisers say anyone who is concerned about a lack of government action over the crisis can go along. Attendees are being encouraged to take banners and placards showing their feelings.
The event will mark the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice. It is being held to coincide with COP26, the United Nations' climate change conference, taking place in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12.
Martin Whiteside, Stroud resident, said: "At this crucial time, when heads of government from around the world are meeting in the UK to make crucial commitments on climate change, we in Stroud want to urge our government to lead with much more urgency. We want our government to stop dithering and take immediate action on this issue."
Punchline said: "Climate change is a very real threat to business. Extreme weather caused by climate change threatens facilities and operations, supply and distribution chains, and access to electricity and water. It can also make it difficult for employees to get into work and for customers to buy products or services."
