Our Aims

We aim to lobby and collaborate with county-wide agencies to develop a serious plan for transition to net zero greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible, and we seek collaborations with other organisations to develop ideas for reaching that goal.

Public Awareness

We work to raise public awareness of the challenges of climate change, and to enhance the local connections that allow campaigners to share knowledge and collaborate in developing local campaigns.

Our Partners

We know that there are lots of groups already active in the area; we want to provide a way for everyone to see what everyone else is doing, and to provide a first port of call for someone who would like to become active but doesn’t know who to contact. The Environmental Groups Page contains a list of local groups and provides links to their websites.

UN Environmental Programme "Emissions Gap Report, 2022" highlights the insufficiency of planned measures to reduce emissions -- and a failure to achieve what has been promised.

The Guardian's Environment Editor Damian Carrington summarises some of the findings of the report here. The report itself, together with the UNEP's quick summary, are available here.
