Warwickshire Climate Alliance
Warwickshire Climate Alliance is an umbrella organisation of Warwickshire environmental groups, devoted to pushing for stronger action within the county on the climate emergency.
We aim to lobby and collaborate with county-wide agencies to develop a serious plan for transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible, and we seek collaborations with other organisations to develop ideas for reaching that goal.
We work to raise public awareness of the challenges of climate change, and to enhance the local connections that allow campaigners to share knowledge and collaborate in developing local campaigns.
We know that there are lots of groups already active in the area; we want to provide a way for everyone to see what everyone else is doing, and to provide a first port of call for someone who would like to become active but doesn’t know who to contact. The Environmental Groups Page contains a list of local groups and provides links to their websites.

Every year, around Christmas time, the Warwickshire Climate Alliance host a virtual quiz online. It's a fun social event with an opportunity to meet and pose questions to the quiz masters as well as win prizes. From 2022, the quiz will also be posted online after the event so that anyone can take part for their own interest.
