This Month's Actions

  • Climate Change - Ask your MP to support the solution
  • Tell Tesco and ask them to support sustainable palm oil
  • Transport and PlanningGet your AMs on the Level
  • Tell Cardiff Council to improve recycling

We have been busy developing our new communication systems to keep our members better informed of important activities in Cardiff. A new website has recently been launched and will continue to be developed and improved over the coming months.

This email bulletin is a key part of developing more regular communications and will hopefully make it easier for members to take part in actions - a key part of achieving campaign success at the local level. Members' financial contribution is greatly appreciated, but writing the odd letter or email to their elected representatives as well will help tremendously! We hope you find the bulletin of value; please feel free to forward it to your friends; and do send us any comments or suggestions.

2006 begins with a host of climate change activities

The Big Ask Live

Rising Welsh acts Crosbi, Camera and Halflight performed on 13th April in support of The Big Ask, Friends of the Earth’s national climate change campaign.

The event was part of a series of 'Big Ask Live' gigs across the UK in March and April 2006, which aim to raise awareness of climate change.

Earth Day Climate Demonstration

To recognise Earth Day, a march was organised by Campaign Against Climate Change. Around 150 people took their concerns climate change on to the streets of Cardiff, marching past shoppers on Cardiff's busy Queen Street.

Forthcoming Events
