Merton's Climate Action Group - Green Economy Meeting

About this event

Have you ever wanted to drive or support climate action in your local area, or develop a project to help tackle climate change?

On 27th January, we launched Merton's new Climate Action Group, a community-led forum for Merton’s residents, businesses and organisations to come together to form projects which reduce carbon emissions in the borough.

The Climate Action Group is formed of 5 work streams: Green Economy; Greening Merton; Buildings & Energy ; Transport; Funding & Engagement.

Every month, the Climate Action Group will be meeting with the Council to discuss a different theme.

On 24th February, you are warmly invited to join the Climate Action Group's Community Leads for the Green Economy, Carola and Diana, to discuss projects that the group could take forward to:

• Encourage waste reduction

• Scale up the circular economy

• Help build 'low carbon' skills

• Encourage green businesses

• Encourage adoption of sustainable diets

• Foster green investments

Whether you already have a specific project in mind or you want to help the group develop existing project ideas, we encourage anyone who's interested in getting involved in the Green Economy work stream to come along to this meeting.

If you would like to attend, please register here and contact Diana and Carola at cag.greeneconomy@gmail.com to confirm what area you are most interested in from the list above so that they can allocate you to the right break-out session. You can also let them know if you have any particular projects in mind or if you're interested in helping others develop their project ideas.

Please note that when you register for this event your name and email address will be shared with Merton Council and the Community Leads for the Climate Action Group who may contact you to obtain further information to help set up and run the meeting and breakout sessions. We will not use your personal information for any other purposes other than facilitating the meeting and will not share your information with other organisations or individuals without obtaining your permission first.
