It is an umbrella organisation of Warwickshire environmental groups, devoted to pushing for stronger action within the county on the climate emergency. They aim to lobby and collaborate with county-wide agencies to develop a serious plan for transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible, and seek collaborations with other organisations to develop ideas for reaching that goal.
They also work to raise public awareness of the challenges of climate change, and to enhance the local connections that allow campaigners to share knowledge and collaborate in developing local campaigns.
Warwickshire Climate Alliance was set up in 2020 to provide a forum for local groups to collaborate. Initially they hoped to work in favour of a Yes vote in a local referendum on an increase in council tax to pay for a move to net zero in Warwick District. That never took place, due to the pandemic, but they continue to exist and work, with some successes — 200 people signed up for the local council elections climate hustings they organised, and they have run some good online talks.
They are currently finalising a review of Warwickshire County Council’s climate emergency action plan, and are beginning work on a project to assess likely impacts of climate change on the area.
