Eastside Climate Action brings together people from the East of the UK, from Derbyshire, through Notts to the East Coast, who are pissed off about the lack of real action by our government on climate change. People who realise that time is too short, and that it is now up to grassroots communities to start taking the actions needed themselves. People who want to start taking direct action against the causes and corporations behind climate change.Keep informed - join the mailing list(s).
Send an email to specifying whether you would like to participate in planning discussions, or just receive (lower traffic) announcements.

Climate change is real and its happening now. Governments and corporations dream of continued economic growth - economic growth can't solve this crisis, but we can. A massive and concerted effort is needed on the scale of 'Dig for Victory' or the 'Home Front': A war on climate change.

We can't continue our current way of life - the oil on which it all depends is running out too fast. A shift to a locally based economy will have to happen, with food and energy being produced by the people that use it. The only question is when? We could start now, or we could wait for a future of war, famine, hurricanes, droughts and floods. We need to gain the courage and change fast enough to cultivate a new world, before it's too late.

Eastside Climate Action is a continuing part of an emerging grassroots movement against climate change, born out of the 2006/7 Camps for Climate Action - uniting people, making changes in our own lives, creating small scale solutions in our communities and resisting those who still seek their own short term gain over a safe future for us all.
