Event description
Join CPRE, the countryside charity, to debate our countryside solutions to the climate emergency

About this Event

The climate emergency is likely to change our countryside beyond recognition. We risk losing the cycle of the seasons, the food we depend on, and the wildlife that makes our country, and our world, so wonderful. But, it doesn’t have to be this way.

By shifting to sustainable public transport and more walking and cycling, we will cut emissions and reduce air pollution, while improving our wellbeing and reconnecting our market towns with increasingly isolated rural communities. In improving the energy efficiency of our homes, we will reduce the demand for new energy supplies. This will lower electricity bills and lift millions of people out of fuel poverty. And by using renewable energy sources, we will move towards a green energy future that provides jobs and opportunities to rural communities.

Speakers will include:

  • Rt Hon George Eustice MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • Luke Pollard MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle, Former Leader of the Green Party
  • Freddie Northcott, youth climate activist
  • Tom Fyans, Campaigns and Policy Director, CPRE The countryside charity

A copy of CPRE’s 'Greener, better, faster' climate emergency action plan and an agenda will be shared in advance of the event. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and more information on this will follow.
