Event description

Description

From Settle to Hull and from Northallerton to Sheffield there are groups working right now on energy, food, transport, and buildings solutions for a climate safe future. Whether already involved or not, this is an event for people who want to make Zero Carbon Yorkshire happen. Over a weekend in Sheffield you will:

· Ground your action in a technically feasible scenario of what a Zero Carbon Britain would look like by 2040.

· Learn how we can overcome the psychological, economic and political challenges of making it happen.

· Bring the vision to life for Yorkshire and the Humber alongside other committed activists from around the region and share experiences about past, present and future projects.

PLEASE NOTE, we hope we don't have to turn anyone away, but if there are more applications than the places available, we plan to select people from applications to ensure we do get a balanced and diverse group. We want to make sure there is a really good mix of people at this event - different genders and ages, from all over Yorkshire, with a range of interests, so we ask you to complete our online form at the time of booking to tell us about yourself, so we can do our best to get this balance. This will also help us to provide accommodation in local homes, if required by those travelling from further away.

This inspiring weekend (see the draft programme here) will be run in collaboration with the Zero Carbon Britain team from the Centre for Alternative Technology. Drawing on their extensive research, they will show us how a zero-carbon future is possible and how to approach the barriers to achieving it, helping us build a common framework for action in our region, and link together to achieve it. Come and join us for stimulating workshops, speakers and conversations, plus arts-based activities, great food, networking and socialising. Together we can make it happen!
