2016 is a crucial year in the fight against climate change. In December last year, the UN held a massive international conference in Paris called COP21 (the 21st Conference of the Parties), which aimed to cut a new global deal to tackle climate change.
CHAIN helped to promote the human impacts of climate change in the run-up to COP21.
We will continue to work with individuals, local schools and community groups across Norfolk to spread information on the impacts of climate change as well as opportunities for everyone to get involved in this fight.
We are a local group of doctors, teachers, parents, and your neighbours. We are non-party-political, and not affiliated to any particular charity or organisation.

How is climate change relevant to me?
Sophia Walker is a BBC Slam Champion and an internationally renowned poet and teaching artist. She was commissioned by the United Nations to perform a piece on the human impacts of climate change at COP21.
SustainableUEA brought Sophia to Norwich and UEA as part of a wider ‘Voices from COP21’ programme at the University of East Anglia in December 2015.
The event was recorded, and the powerful poem itself is below:
