Sector 'has vital role on climate'

"The third sector spans community groups, national and international membership organisations, volunteers, trade unions, faith communities, social enterprises and co-ops," it says.

"The surge of leadership we need to create a new politics of climate change can come only from here. The sector has a historic opportunity to mobilise on this."
