Tell your friends. Bring your family along. Ask your work colleagues to come. And please make sure your union branch is supporting the march and bringing the union banner!
Climate change is a trade union issue! We need transformative change to save our planet. We need a just transition so no workers are left behind. We need public investment to create good green jobs, raise living standards for the many, and green our economy.
Please joint Trade Union Bloc on our Sheffield demo at Devonshire Green. Assemble behind the Sheffield Trades Council banner.

7th-10th November – National People’s Summit for Climate Justice
- The COP26 Coalition is hosting the People’s Summit as an alternative to business as usual of false solutions and inaction at the COP negotiations. The Summit will be held both in-person in Glasgow and online.
Join us in imaging our future, combining our knowledge and building the movement for climate justice from the ground up. You can now explore the initial programme and register at www.cop26coalition.org/ps
We need to all work together to protect the communities of those that we march through, so are gently asking those attending to:
- Do your own lateral flow test at home before attending
- Where you can do so, to wear a mask
- Try and keep 1 metre physical distancing
