At 8pm on Saturday 11th November you can join men, women and children in towns and villages across the country who are standing in solidarity to remember people whose lives and livelihoods have been lost as a result of our changing climate: from floods and storms to extreme temperatures and wildfires.
Vigil organisers say that millions gave, and continue to give, their lives in service of our country, in past and current wars. On this year’s remembrance weekend, they believe we are facing a very real and different type of threat to our country – our changing climate. They say this event is designed to ensure that their sacrifices are not wasted.
The event takes place in Petersfield Square and lasts twenty minutes with a one minute silence at the end. It is organised by Beverly Exall.
