Over the past few months, I’ve worked hard on discussing climate action in the community, as well as witnessing the horrors of climate tragedy abroad.

In September, I started the month by joining the Brighton Grove Allotment Association at their annual Allotment Show. It’s always a great time to see so many people grow food locally and the unique fruit and vegetables people are able to grow.

When the House returned from recess I intervened in a Westminster Hall debate on the climate loss and damage fund, as agreed to at COP27. This fund is crucial to supporting countries who contribute the least to climate change, but suffer the most. You can view my intervention below.

In October, I joined Islamic Relief in Sindh, Pakistan, an area heavily impacted by the floods in 2022. In the village of Dadu, I met with families and households, who were still rebuilding homes. I met with households who suffered from a rise in health issues because of the water, such as malaria. It was clear that this tragic event over one year ago hurt the community, but together with Islamic Relief, they were rebuilding and working to support one another. You can read my full blog post on my visit here.

Later in October I attended the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool. Here I met many environmental and climate focussed charities and businesses who want a greener future for the UK and beyond. I also had the opportunity to meet with the Local Government Association to call for Government support in the transition to net zero.

I also joined the APPG on Climate to call for an Envoy to COP28.

I then chaired a dinner with National Energy Action and Cadent Foundation which discussed the importance of supporting households facing fuel poverty and the role green energy has in ending fuel poverty.

Finally in October I attended The University of Manchester to learn more about the research they are doing. It was great to hear about the project and how there are more sustainable options than plastic.

In November, I hosted Manchester’s Mini-COP28 in Rusholme, inviting primary schools across the area to present their climate solutions. We know the climate crisis is an issue primarily cared for by the youth and giving them a voice and the opportunity to learn from the peers is invaluable. A huge thank you to every school, teacher, and young person who participated.


I also joined the 470 Tree Project at Platt Fields. The project is expanding to 4,700 trees across the new Rusholme constituency within five years. I was honoured to be able to plant the first tree.

Finally, I had the opportunity to question the Minister at Net Zero oral questions, which you can view below.
