Sadly we have had to pause this course after the first week in line with Learn Devon’s COVID-19 response. But do take a look at what Climate Outreach are doing, including the impressive Climate Visuals collection. More updates in our monthly e-news.
On Saturday 23rd November 2019 at Tavistock’s Butchers Hall. Come and talk to us at our stall (near the cafe area) between 10am and 3pm, and join in a discussion on sustainable travel we’re leading in the cafe at 11am.
Our partners Tamar Energy Community have assembled a rich mix of other stalls and will be showcasing their varied local projects on saving and generating energy. Details here.
Over the past year we’ve been highlighting sustainable transport as important for clean air, healthy living and the climate at our regular events and stalls. We have started a Transition Tavistock working group to bring together people interested in promoting this.
If you think it should be easier for us to choose to walk, cycle, use public transport or run a car that doesn’t pollute, get involved.
Next meeting Thursday 5th March 2020 at 7.30pm in the Anchorage Centre. More information on what we’re working on and how you can help here.
We’re at Eco Fest Tavi in the Meadows on Saturday 20th July, 11am to 4pm. Do call in to our stall. The link to the event website is; https://www.ecofesttavi.co.uk/
We will be focusing on local sustainable transport. Please call in and see us!
This is for anyone who wants to win hearts and minds for the changes we need to make to address climate change – whether in a community group, workplace or politics. It’s not about explaining science, but engaging people in the transition to a low carbon way of life.
It will be free, at the Alexander Centre in Tavistock, and on three Monday evenings in June: 10th, 17th & 24th. Poster attached, and link to details and online booking here https://www.learndevon.co.uk/course-details/course/WB8607/
We shall be gathering around some food and drink to share ideas on how we can contribute to the challenges of mitigating the effects of the Climate Emergency.
This will take place in Local Matters at 12 noon we will have a brief AGM followed by the Climate Emergency discussions.
To take place in Local Matters at 7:30pm we will have a brief AGM followed by a discussion about all things plastic. Sharing our experiences on reducing our consumption of plastic, including recycling and alternatives.
This replaces our usual informal get together on the second Tuesday of each month for Green Drinks, but we expect it to be just as relaxed and enjoyable. Please join us.
