Here’s why Huddersfield Friends of the Earth have organised this fantastic festival:

Now more than ever we need to stand up for the climate. For nearly 30 years we have been told we have to decrease carbon emissions to limit global temperature increases to under 20C. This has not happened and we are now on track to global temperature increases of 40C + by the end of the century, causing more and more extreme weather events such as flooding, storms, sea level rise, droughts, food shortages.
