This is the speech given by Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands at Coventry & Warwickshire Climate Change Conference on 11 March 2022.
The seven local authorities in the Coventry and Warwickshire area met to agree how to work together and share information to address the challenges of climate change.
Attendance was by invitation only. Many local climate activists and groups felt excluded, believing that global warming will only be stopped by engaging as many people as possible. Ultimately each one of us is responsible for taking action.
