In partnership with South Yorkshire Sustainability Centre & the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures

If climate warming continues, our region will change completely, forever.

Our wildlife may die out, our rivers could dry up, and even the trees, hedges and grasses might be gone, replaced by the arid countryside of Mediterranean countries. Droughts and flooding will become more common as extreme weather events increase, and our soil can't respond.

What is being done to protect the green and biodiverse landscape of South Yorkshire? What can ordinary people do about the climate crisis?
