Join a discussion with dynamic climate leadership from local government, business, the media, education, youth, civil society and faith communities.

Speakers will be invited to provide brief responses to focused questions before an open discussion with all participants.

How are we stepping up to the challenge?

Messages from the questions, responses and ensuing conversation will be collated into a statement challenging local and global leaders to act urgently to stop the international climate crisis.

WESSA, SAFCEI and 350.org along with other supporting organisations and communities, are hosting this Cape Town mini-summit, contributing to a global initiative involving thousands of people around the world who are holding climate events on this day.

Join us at Rosebank Methodist Church for a vigorous discussion and vegetarian refreshments afterwards.
