What is a Climate Cafe?
In line with the vision and aims of our group, the idea behind a Climate Cafe is to
share ways that people from the local area are working to make our town more carbon neutral and environmentally friendly
by putting on activities and workshops giving practical advice, to help people feel empowered to make the shift to a more sustainable way of life
bring people from the local community together to encourage discussion and debate about the sustainble future of our area

In short - loads! And there will be giveaways and prizes to keep an eye out for, and drinks and food available from the cafe.
