36 people came to CCF’s AGM, helping celebrate some great successes – last year our volunteers and partners supported us in hosting dozens of sustainable living events, including the world’s biggest Repair Café and a very popular Open Eco Homes season. Tackling climate change is of course a monumental task so we’ll also be seeking your input into tackling challenges and exploring opportunities for the future. Following a brief formal AGM (see Minutes, 2017 Annual Report, 2017 Accounts),
we had these engaging and thought-provoking talks:
TALK: A Carbon Temperature Take
Caterina Brandmayr, Policy Analyst at the Green Alliance think tank, spoke about the current political will to achieve carbon budgets and the impact of Brexit on climate change. She shared Green Alliance’s work on how UK cities can make a big contribution to cutting UK carbon emissions. See Caterina Brandmayr’s Slides
Pippa Heylings, newly elected South Cambs District Councillor, was unable to be with us and sent a video overview of the ambition of the newly created District Council’s ‘Climate Change and Environment Committee’, of which she is Chair.
After the talks we had lively audience questions and discussion. Then there was time for informal discussion with staff, volunteers, trustees and other supporters over a cup of tea and a bit of cake.
People said they were amazed to hear how much CCF had achieved in 2017 and the talks provoked lots of discussion about how CCF can contribute to Cambridge’s carbon neutral ambitions.
