It was fascinating to get an inside view of Westminster and to meet with all three political parties, one after another. There was a clear difference between them all and their preparation for the meeting. Sorella said "It was invaluable for the politicians to meet with the WI and to hear the concerns and opinions of ordinary women. Women are most affected by climate change around the world and yet are also very powerful agents of change".
The WI's various projects to raise awareness have been very effective. These have included Eco Teams, Love Food and Women Reaching Women. The WI are also taking part in The Wave, a march to highlight the Copenhagen UN climate summit this weekend. Go along if you can!
