GATHERINGS

One of the most important elements to creating change is to tell stories. Having people face to face (or in a COVID-19 safe space on a zoom meeting) so that they can exchange their thoughts, their ideas, their experience and importantly their social connections is what creates the fabric of our action.

 

We hold monthly group meetings, informative monthly webinars and attend market events. Before our social lives changed with a pandemic we held what we'd hoped would be a seasonal Climate Action Picnic, where we could bring together all the many groups and businesses that are paying attention to the problem, and offering positive solutions. 

Feel free to join us whenever you can as we swell our numbers. People power, we believe, is the only thing that's ever made a difference when facing a major challenge like climate change.
