Following our event at West Bank Park, XR York has been continuing to campaign for a coronavirus recovery plan that puts people and planet first, working with local organisations and communities in the city.
West Bank Park in Acomb isn’t a bad place to spend a sunny afternoon, especially when there’s live music, gardening tips, and community arts projects involved… Despite the ongoing threat of COVID-19, a better world is within reach.
At the moment, most people’s energy is taken up with the international need to tackle the threat and effects of the Coronavirus outbreak. Gatherings to protest about the climate are not possible, therefore it is a good time to focus on regenerative action.
XR York Co-ordinator Merry Dickinson explores the complex relationship between COVID-19 and the climate emergency.
Media Coordinator Laura Cox tackles the subject we can’t (and shouldn’t) avoid talking about.
