Merton's Climate Action Group - Greening Merton 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 31st March, you are warmly invited to join us to discuss the Greening Merton theme. 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 this work stream to come along to this meeting.

If you would like to attend, please register here and contact Kelly, the Community Lead for this theme, at cag.greeningmerton@gmail.com by Friday 26th March to confirm:
