Climate Forum 2023

As the UN's climate change summit approaches, Warrington Climate Emergency Commission are leading the charge locally with a range of events for people and businesses to engage with climate action this November.


The Climate Emergency Forum 2023 is a programme of events that runs from Saturday 18 November to Monday 4 December, put together by the Climate Emergency Commission, a group set up to lead the local public conversation on what we need to  do in Warrington to help tackle the climate and ecological emergencies.

The programme includes a cinema screening of “The Business of Nature” part of the Save Our Wild Isles series, a free drop-in repair service in Birchwood, an event at University Centre Warrington to showcase Warrington action in response to the Climate Emergency, and an event to mark Carbon Literacy Action Day.

Cllr Janet Henshaw, cabinet member for sustainability and climate change, said: “The first ever Climate Emergency Forum in Warrington includes a real mix of events to inspire, inform, and motivate people and organisations to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies head-on.

“The programme has been created by the commission with support from a range of local organisations working together to encourage real change in Warrington.”

Cllr David Ellis, Chair of Warrington’s Climate Emergency Commission, said: “As the media focus shifts to international progress via the upcoming UN Conference, it’s important we don’t lose sight of our local role making the changes needed. 

“We need to see action from all quarters across Warrington – at home, at work, and in our communities.  The Climate Action Forum provides a chance for people and organisations to come together and learn from each other so that we can achieve more than we would otherwise achieve alone.
