On Friday 20th September, Annabelle Tugby Architects joined over 6 million people around the world in an inspiring day of climate action. We met at Manchester Central Library just 3 days before the UN emergency climate summit to deliver a clear message for climate justice.
We bought a tree from the nursery in Styal and took it on the train to plant in the city centre next to the Property Alliance Group bronze sculpture of a forerunner of a much earlier political movement, Emmeline Pankhurst. The Bramley apple tree is thriving and will bear fruit for years to come.
For the past year, we have been really excited by young people around the world who have been leading the climate strikes and as architects clearly see we have an important role to play in attempting to tackle this emergency. It should be our duty as a society to fight for change in order to protect our climate for future generations. Let’s mobilise together!
