Demand A Future – Night Forum On Climate Emergency

About

On Friday 21st June, Extinction Rebellion York is inviting the city's residents to act together to combat climate change. Demand A Future – Night Forum On Climate Emergency, at York Explore on Museum Street from 4.00-11.00pm, will be a community-led, peoples' assembly, creating an opportunity for groups and individuals to work towards building a sustainable future for all.

Demand A Future will be split into three main sections: ALERT, ASSEMBLY, and AHEAD.

4.00 – 7.00pm ALERT: The first part of the evening will offer a variety of family friendly, engaging activities including arts and crafts, choir, face painting, storytelling and more.

7.00 – 9.00pm ASSEMBLY: The event will then move into a period of discussion and debate, encouraging cross-organisational conversations and holding quick-fire speaker sessions.

9.00 – 11.00pm AHEAD: The evening will conclude with live music, spoken word, theatre, and open mic performances.

Mark Matthews, co-ordinator of Extinction Rebellion York, said:

"A declaration of a climate emergency and commitment to carbon neutrality was only the start. It means nothing if it's not followed up with concrete action. Demand A Future will be an opportunity for local people to get involved in demanding what action needs to be taken and imagining what an ecologically and socially just future in York looks like."

Endorsing Demand A Future, the Archbishop of York John Sentamu said:

"It is our shared human calling to care for the earth and each other with the love that God has for his creation and in the sure hope of its restoration, and I fully support any movement to increase peaceful collaboration to that end."
