Hooper St. CB1 2NZ


Looking for an opportunity to develop your presentation and workshop skills? Why not help spread the word on climate change and carbon reduction by joining the CCF outreach team?

For the right candidates we are offering full training in how to communicate effectively about climate change, and how to plan and deliver engaging workshops and presentations. The training will include 2 x 2 hour sessions.

During the first session, participants will learn the basics of communicating about climate change and carbon reduction. During the second participants will then have the opportunity to present to the group 15 minutes of a workshop of their own devising. Participants will be expected to give and receive constructive feedback in a supportive atmosphere, so will need to attend all two.

We are ideally looking for people who have completed a Carbon Conversations course or have a background in low carbon living/sustainability and who have some experience of leading groups or speaking in public.

A Vegetarian Christmas Cooking Workshop

6:00 pmto9:00 pm

Parkside Community CollegeBev 3
Cambridge, CB1 1EH  

For most people in the UK, Christmas dinner is all about the turkey, the ham and the gravy. But what do you cook if you are expecting a vegetarian guest? Offering roasted veg with Bisto can be a bit dull but finding delicious alternatives to the traditional favourites can be a daunting prospect for some people.

Cambridge Carbon Footprint to the rescue! Come along to our Vegetarian Christmas Cooking Workshop and we’ll provide you with ideas for starters and mains and cook some scrumptious recipes together! If there’s time at the end of the evening we will all sit down together to devour the food, if not, please bring along a container in which to take food home.

There is a suggested donation of £10 per person and a limit of 10 people, so make sure you book quickly!

To book, please email your contact details to: info@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org or call 01223 30184. Please also let us know whether you have any food allergies.
