Event description

Description

Back by popular demand! The Community Climate Action Network is organising this Networking Event for climate change-focused community groups based in Nottingham, Derby, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. This is a chance for all the amazing people who are tackling the climate emergency in their communities to come together to share ideas, successes, learning and food.

It’s an exciting time – since our last Networking Event in March 2019, climate change has risen up the public agenda; our country, and many of our Local Authorities, have declared Climate Emergencies; and the work many of us have quietly been doing for years in our communities is getting more recognition. Come and celebrate what we’re all doing, share your frustrations at what’s not being done fast enough, and be inspired by others to keep going!

  • ‘Bring and share’ lunch (we’ll provide the drinks)
  • Hear about exciting projects from a number of groups in the area
  • Share about your own group’s activities
  • Carbon Literacy workshop from Caroline Harmon of MEA
  • This event will be preceed by a community consultation event on Nottingham City Council's Carbon Netural Action Plan, wich all Nottingham City residents are welcome to attend. Book here.

Want to shout about your work? If your group is currently running a project and you would like to provide a 25 minute workshop/talk about the project please let us know. We can provide guidance on the best way to do this. This is your chance to inspire others with the great work you’re all doing! Contact: caroline.harmon@mea.org.uk

Our venue will be Arkwright Meadows Community Garden, a community-led project providing a green oasis within walking distance of Nottingham City Centre. The project grows and sells organic fruit and vegetables, provides volunteering, education and training, and delivers a wealth of community activities. The Gardens site and buildings are fully wheelchair accessible.
