Petition for 10,000 climate jobs in Sheffield

Sheffield Climate Alliance have launched a petition to Sheffield City Council to call for the creation of 10,000 climate jobs.

The petition reads

We are local people who care about climate change and understand that it is an economic and social issue.

We call on Sheffield City Council to implement a plan for 10,000 new climate jobs in Sheffield, to address the economic and environmental crisis, through:

Making new and existing buildings energy efficient
Expanding and integrating low-fare public transport
Creating research and manufacturing for energy generation from renewable sources
Enabling a switch to local, ecological food production
Offering free programmes of training in Green Skills

To find out more and sign the petition visit the Sheffield Climate Alliance website.
