Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon works to reduce carbon emissions and increase sustainability in the Bradford on Avon area.

Our activities are frequent, wide ranging, both fun and serious.
We take every opportunity to raise awareness and take practical action.

We are totally inclusive and there is plenty of opportunity for people of all ages, abilities and interests to get involved.

All are welcome at our monthly meetings, where we usually have a speaker, as well as time for questions and to chat...

To solve the challenges of climate change we need to involve everyone and encourage them all to play their part
Food and drink that is good for us and good for the environment; food that does not cost the earth
Working to promote biodiversity for the good of wildlife, humans and the environment
Reduce energy use, switch to a renewable supplier, generate your own — for reduced emissions and a better life
Reducing reliance on petrol and diesel powered vehicles, to reduce emissions and improve health
Reduce, re-use, recycle — the less you waste the more money you save

March meeting – AGM and Introduction to Extinction Rebellion

We will be having our AGM in March, and an small introduction to Extinction Rebellion (see below)

Monday 18th March
7.00 for 7.30pm at The Quaker Meeting House, 1 Whiteheads Lane, Bradford on Avon BA15 1JU

Shortly after the publication of the IPCC’s report on the transformation needed in global economies and societies if global temperature rise is to be kept below 1.5° above pre industrial levels, a new radical movement made its presence known in London. Established by a group called Rising Up, the movement is called Extinction Rebellion, (XR for short) and as it sounds, it is rebelling against the current rapid extinction of species underway because of the destruction our own species is causing to habitats world wide, through climate change and resource extraction.

Climate Café social + Extinction Rebellion talk

Tuesday 5th February, 6.30pm – Climate Café Social – Bring and share food/drink

Followed by talk at 7.30pm – What is Extinction Rebellion? How should we respond to the Climate Emergency?

FEBRUARY MEETING Discussion

The format for our February meeting will be a little different to the usual. Our chair, Rachel Berger, writes: “Climate change is happening very fast, and we have a very small window of opportunity for taking strong action to prevent catastrophe later this century – yet there is little sign of commitment from either governments or individuals to this kind of drastic action. Why?” Paul Hoggett is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at UWE, Bristol. He is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and has been involved in training and consultancy to public and voluntary organisations for many years. He is Chair of the Climate Psychology Alliance which seeks to bring insights from depth psychology to our understanding of collective paralysis in the face of dangerous climate change. Paul will give some insights into this collective inertia, and then set listeners some questions to discuss in small groups.
