Climate change is widely recognised as a threat to peace and security, so Coventry Climate Action Network (CovCAN) is to be welcomed as a step towards reducing that risk.
CovCAN brings together students, citizens, politicians, activists and anyone concerned about climate change to discuss how to encourage others to make changes that will help reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
It builds on an earlier network with the same name established a few years ago by the University of Warwick.
It was restarted in response to demands from students who were on strike for climate and who wanted to establish eco-teams in all schools and a central coordinating committee.
It now has its own website covcan.uk and newsletter.
Its first meeting will be on 7 June.
