Note Change of Venue

The UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) was held in Sharm el Sheik in November 2022,

The annual COP conferences are hugely important International events. Their outcome will determine the extent to which a shared global response to the climate crisis will be able to limit its impact of climate change on current and future generations. 

Join us at 11 am on Friday, December 2nd in the Cwtch area upstairs in the Hafan yr Afon building to learn about and discuss the outcomes of the COP27 conference. Tea and coffee with  a biscuit will be served for £2.50 each.
