Climate change is the greatest challenge of our times. It is vital that action is taken to avoid dangerous climate breakdown and damage to the natural world. Yet action also brings opportunities for: energy independence, unpolluted water and air, reversing wildlife decline, better health for humans, liveable towns and cities, and jobs created in sustainable technologies.
The meeting will include:

The Centre for Alternative Technology’s Zero Carbon Britain Project, as presented by Paul Allen, offers the hard data and confidence required for visualising a future where we have risen to the challenges of climate science.
The evening is designed to reduce fear and misunderstandings and open a new, positive, solution-focused conversation. Paul will be joined by Kate Chapman, an environmental consultant, and entrepreneur, who will provide local context.
