COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT GROUP
If we're going to solve the challenges of climate change we need to involve everyone and encourage them all to play their part in some way.
To do this we are working in a variety of ways with local councils, schools, businesses, churches and other community organisations, including giving talks to other groups and running stalls at events; and campaigning locally and nationally.
We organise a monthly programme of evening meetings with speakers on a variety of topics to do with climate change, sustainable living and biodiversity, and once a month we have a drop-in coffee morning. If you feel you would like to help the group in any way please email email@example.com.
