We’re talking about the Devon Carbon Plan

The Devon Climate Emergency partnership has come up with lots of ideas – use their survey (by15th Feb) to show which you support.

Our Zoom event on 27th January covered an introduction – as we see it – to how the plan and consultation work, and some of the themes it covers. More detail on our Climate Matters page. Since then a poster summarising the plan in 8 points has been released.

Travel Action Group – get involved

Our Travel Action Group has been unable to hold meetings in recent months due to coronavirus restrictions, but we have been keeping in touch in other ways. We’ve contributed to a round table on active travel. See the Travel section of our website for more about our activities and ways to get involved.

See us at Tamar Energy Fest

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.

Travel Action Group gets going

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.

Communicating Climate Change

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/

Plastics: What can we do? and 2018 AGM Tues 13th Nov.

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.

Bring along seeds you have to swop … and have a-grow at something different in 2018.

No seeds to bring? Come along anyway, pick up some seeds, have a-grow, and bring your own seeds back next year!

There’ll be lots of growers, gardening advice, plenty of chat … together with tea and cake.

We look forward to ‘seeding’ with you.
