This event is part five 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 is 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.

This workshop is part of the Cambridge Carbon Footprint Net Zero Now winter programme. Click here to find out more about the programme and our other sessions. Funded by South Cambridge District Council and the National Lottery.
