Event description

Description

Join us for a practical guide to cutting your carbon footprint with the UK’s leading carbon expert.

It’s hard to think of an aspect of our lives that doesn’t use energy, resulting in carbon emissions. Heating our homes, the food and drinks we consume, the products we buy, the travel we do… it all produces emissions that make up our personal carbon footprint.

Join internationally renowned carbon expert Mike Berners-Lee for an insight into what causes the biggest chunks of your footprint, and the changes you could make to bring down the emissions generated through your day-to-day life.

Mike will be sharing all the latest information, fresh from his new book, There is No Planet B – A Handbook for the Make or Break Years.

It’s a particularly timely talk, with councils across Cumbria declaring climate emergencies, pledging to cut emissions in their districts. Mike’s practical suggestions will help every resident to play their part in the journey to a zero carbon county.
