All parish, town and community councils and clerks are faced with the problem of what to do about climate change, and how to get it firmly on their agenda. They would love to find out what to do and how to do it.
Come along to this short Q&A event where you can talk to a team closely involved in helping parish and town councils understand what needs to be done, and how to act. You will see how you can deliver more benefits for your community, particularly with respect to lower costs of living, more jobs, better housing and better health through acting on the threat of climate change.
This is a great opportunity for you to find out more about the Carbon Literacy Qualification and ask any questions you may have.
Monday 13 May, 11:00am – 11:30am
There are no CPD points available for this session.
Joining instructions will be sent to you approximately 3 weeks before the event (please check your spam inbox).
Sarah was at the Department for Education for most of her working life. When she retired she became the Parish Clerk in her small village. Concern about the world we were leaving to our children, coupled with time and resources to do something about it, led Sarah to working with the Parish Council and community to declare a climate emergency and develop a supporting action plan.
Sarah completed the Carbon Literacy training in May (2023) and her pledge is to get at least two EV charging points in her village, saving 40 tonnes of carbon a year.
Sarah lives happily but too carbon-intensively with her husband and two dogs in the Peak District. Her carbon footprint is about average for the UK, and admits there’s still a long way to go for her to get to net zero but she’s working on it.
Allan, Richard and Sarah will also be joined by:
- Caelan Knight, Local Authorities Coordinator, The Carbon Literacy Project
