ECO-MINDED residents interested in reducing their carbon impact are being invited to a community event at Leamington Town Hall next month.
The Warwick District Council-organised event – taking place on Saturday November 5 from 10am to 1pm – will feature features talks and presentations from a number of community groups and organisations that have led the way in reducing the climate impact.
The event will be held the day before COP27 begins in in Egypt. The annual United Nations Climate Change Conference brings together leaders from across the world to work together to confront the climate crisis.
Kenilworth All Together Greener, Low Carbon Warwickshire, Bar Zero Barford and Heart of England Forest are just some of those that will be talking at the event, and there will also be updates from WDC’s Climate Change team on the Council’s Climate Change Action Programme.
WDC climate change spokesman Cou Alan Rhead said: “Our ambitious Climate Change Action Programme can only be achieved with the help and encouragement of local communities working together to reduce their climate impact.
“We’re all in this together, and the mantra ‘think global, act local’ is exactly how we will help to combat the devastating effects of climate change. I’d encourage anyone interested in finding out how others have achieved results in their communities to come along.”
