South Yorkshire Climate Alliance

SCA Seeks Trustees

Sheffield Climate Alliance (SCA) is a well-established  coalition of individuals and groups pressing for fair and effective action to tackle  the climate crisis, in Sheffield and across the globe. This includes campaigns around stopping fossil fuel extraction, encouraging pension authorities to end carbon-based investments, seeking radical changes to our food systems, and promoting the importance of clean air in our city. We also work in partnership with  dozens of different community organisations on  grassroots actions to lower the carbon emissions in our city and the surrounding region. 

We are at a unique moment in history, when we have the choice how to invest in the recovery from Covid-19. SCA is campaigning for and working towards a fairer, greener, sustainable future.

SCA is looking for committed and passionate volunteers to join our committee as Trustees, to help manage its ongoing commitments and expand its horizons with new points of view and new skill sets. You don’t need any direct knowledge of the climate crisis, just a readiness to learn and a commitment to the cause. The smallest of tasks can contribute to a much larger whole – which can, eventually, lead to real change.

SCA is going through a period of considerable change: reviewing our main focus and role in the movement, reconnecting with our founding purpose as a force for uniting allies in the fight for climate justice, and celebrating confirmation of significant new funding. It is a phenomenally exciting time to get involved.
