MOST READ

Local climate action group, Parents For Future Stroud, are hosting a Warm This Winter event in Stroud as part of a national day of action addressing fuel poverty and the climate crisis.

The free event will be held upstairs at Lansdown Gallery on Saturday 4th December between 11am-2pm.

The event includes a ‘warm clothes share’ where visitors are invited to donate warm clothing on the day and everyone is invited to take something away. Visitors to the warm space can enjoy free vegan-miso soup donated from Tomari-Gi, free refreshments and vegan cakes. Parents For Future Stroud will be on hand to offer information and friendly discussion about the group, renewables and easy ways to engage with climate action. Activities for children include making a windmill and Christmas crafts. 

Warm This Winter events are happening across the country in response to the millions of people facing fuel poverty this winter and beyond. The campaign brings together a coalition of fuel-poverty, disability, housing and climate campaign charities and groups, including Parents For Future. The coalition believes that everyone deserves to be warm this winter and calls on the government to act now to lower bills, heat homes and protect the planet. The day of action follows Fuel Poverty Awareness Day 2nd December, and marks six weeks from the new Prime Minister taking office. 

Parents For Future Stroud is a friendly and supportive group for people to share climate concerns and ideas, and coordinate local actions. The group has regular online and in-person meetings and aspires to include everyone (including non-parents) who would like to join the conversation. It is part of the global Parents For Future movement formed by parents inspired by the school strike movement and wanting to see action to protect the futures of all children. 

Lucie Brown, Movement Organiser and Co-founder of Parents for Future Stroud says: 

“Stroud is a town rooted in social and climate action with an inspiring community of people concerned about the future for our children. Our Parents For Future group has been set up to support and amplify the great grass-roots work already being done locally. We want to see far greater ambition from our representatives in tackling the fuel and climate crisis and an immediate end to expensive new gas and oil projects which won’t help the growing number of people living in poverty.”
