Edition: March 2023
We are keen to help local organisations reduce their carbon emissions and are now supporting Parish and Neighbourhood Councils (PCs and NCs) on their own journeys to help our District reach its carbon neutral target by 2050.
Supporting carbon reduction in your parish or neighbourhood So far, we have held workshops with 27 different PCs and NCs on how they, and their communities can tackle climate change.
The collaborative sessions focused on how to develop climate change action plans and the most effective ways to reduce carbon emissions, engage their communities, and care for our environment. Actions could include improving energy efficiency, providing opportunities to repair, recycle and re-use items, and reducing waste.
One workshop attendee said:
We are continuing our commitment to support their collaborations by hosting periodic meetings and an online platform to share resources.
Some parishes have already started some great work such as: running bike maintenance workshops, green film festivals, creating single use plastic recycling points, and installing solar panels on their village halls.
