We run regular events throughout the year, from sustainable food talks and eco-renovation tours, to “swishing” and book swaps. Events are open to all. Join our mailing list or follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our latest news and events.

Histon Repair Cafe

Repair Cafes match experienced repairers with people who need stuff fixing.

You can bring along the following to be repaired and maybe pick up a few repair skills at the same time: small household appliances and electrical items, computers, mobile phones, bicycles, clothes (clean clothes only please) and general bits and bobs. Please book your item in by filling in the online form here, or you can turn up on the day. The repairers are experienced and can fix most things but there are no guarantees.

This is a free event. However, donations to cover venue hire and other costs are very welcome.

A sustainable future: finding your way

150617_1010039_lobbyTizard Room
Churchill College

Are you concerned about climate change, but not sure what to do about it? Whether it’s a way with words, an ability to empathise or organise, a taste for campaigning, or something else entirely, the truth is that each of us have particular skills, interests and aspirations that might contribute to building a rich and rewarding low-carbon future. This workshop will give you the chance to reflect upon what that future might look like and how you might help to build it. We’ll explore what motivates you, what might get in the way, and begin to find a way forward which is right for you.

Free event. To book email info@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org.
