This event is part two of six in our Net Zero Now training programme. You don’t have to have attended the previous sessions to come along to this session. It has been designed for people involved in or setting up community climate initiatives, e.g. green groups, parish councillors etc. and those involved in other community groups looking to do what they can, e.g. church groups, scout groups etc. There will be opportunities to network, and meet like minded individuals.
