#BackClimateAction tweetathon

25 November #BackClimateAction National and international "tweetathon" on climate change and action that can be taken to tackle it.

Relevant authorities will come together from food, water, health, business, biodiversity, the natural environment, government, cities, homes and sport to talk about the impacts of climate change and the action that can be taken to tackle it – both in the UK and globally

From 0900 until 1900 (GMT) on 25 November you can tweet your questions as well as find out what leaders in the field are thinking and doing on climate change.

The tweetathon will be broken down into hourly slots themed around a different subject such as health, cities and sport. There will be an expert for each session who will respond to questions – via Twitter – about how climate change will impact the featured subject matter or the action that can be taken.
