Climate Change and Children – Interview with Chris Beales (RCCP Chair)

Originally posted here: https://readingcan.org.uk/climate-change-and-children-interview-with-chris-beales-rccp-chair

This is the forth in the series of interviews that I had with the wonderful Ayo Sokale. In this, Ayo asks me about  ‘Climate Change and Children’.  My son was born close to time I started my role as Chair of the RCCP so this is very real for me. It is so important that we create a good future for him, and all of our children. We need to push hard, believe and make it happen…and there is no more time to wait.

  • Please do check out our new Adaptation Plan. Reading this, you’ll understand a lot about where I am coming from in the interview. It is important to appreciate the risks that we face…and to pick up on the some of the things we can do to get prepared for climate change.

All the best,

 

Chris

CDP cities logo Reading added to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) ‘A’ List
23 November 2021

I am very happy to see that Reading has been added to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) 'A' List on Climate Action. Out of more than 1000 towns and cities worldwide, Reading is one of just 95 towns (10 in the UK) to receive top score on climate action. It has been great to be a part of that journey with the ReadingCAN (Climate Action Network). Knowing that the town has a strong strategy and adaptation plan is a really important part of that. Fingers-crossed that we can keep up the momentum for the future.

I am delighted to be on the panel for this event on Friday 26 November: As our climate changes, how do we protect British landscapes and encourage resilience amongst their local communities ? Join us to discover how communities have coped with environmental change in the past and the lessons we can all learn from this, as we deal with the effects of climate change happening right now. How are these landscapes altering and what adaptations do we need to make to ensure our management of them is sustainable?
