Rise for Climate Action Cape Town

How are we stepping up to the challenge?

Saturday 8 September, 10h00 – 13h00

On 8 September, we’ll be having a conversation with dynamic climate leadership from local government, business, the media, education, youth, civil society and faith communities. Please join us to #riseforclimate!

At the event, speakers will give brief responses to focused questions before an open discussion. Messages from the ensuing conversation about the global climate crisis will be collated into a statement challenging local and global leaders to act urgently and purposefully to stop climate change.

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

Please join us at Rosebank Methodist Church Hall (here’s a map) from 10a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday 8 September, for a vigorous discussion followed by vegetarian refreshments. Entrance is free.

RSVP to the event here.
