Launch of Sheffield Climate Vigil
We are launching a silent climate vigil on Thursday 7th April from 5-6 pm, opposite Millenium Gallery on Howard St, next to Hallam University main building.
The United Nations describe the climate crisis as “code red for humanity”. Sir David King, former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government, said “What we do, I believe, in the next 3-5 years will determine the future of humanity”.
So we felt moved to vigil, to stand or sit in the street, and silently bear witness to the urgency of this situation.
We welcome people of all faiths and none. We hope that the vigil is also welcoming to people with disabilities: please let us know if you require help to join in. Wear black if you wish, but you are welcome as you are. We welcome passers-by to join and we have spare placards available.
We will have leaflets to explain the vigil and useful actions to take.
Please join us at the launch and spread the word, The next vigil will be Monday 25 April 12-13.00 at the Town Hall.
