Climate Change Action Day

Sat 4th May, St Thomas’ Church

Wow, thank you for all the support with the crowdfunding for this event. Along with support from Lancashire County Council we managed to reach our target of £1500, enabling the event to be delivered free of charge. This event is aimed at everyone with an interest in climate change, from those who want to find out how to reduce their carbon footprint at home, to those with an appetite to explore innovative ideas around community energy and transport, recycling and plastic free initiatives.

The event will be hosted by St Thomas’ Church in Barrowford and will be opened by keynote speaker, Rick Battarbee, Emeritus Professor of Environmental Change at University College London.

We have been delighted by the response from the groups coming to share their expertise and knowledge about climate change, such as Whalley Community Hydro, Gazegill Organics, Readstone Environmental Group, Forest of Bowland National Landscape Partnership, Ribble Rivers Trust, East Lancashire Beekeepers Association and Trawden Community shop.

There will also be some fabulous children’s activities, including an eco-treasure hunt, building a recycled ‘junk’ art installation, bike riding and fruit smoothie making.

A Question Time panel will take place at 4.30pm, so that local residents can put their questions about climate change to experts and elected representatives, including Andrew Stephenson MP. If you’ve a climate question you’d like to ask, this is your chance!

The day will round off with a free pie and pea supper and ceilidh, so remember to bring your dancing shoes! To book your free ticket, click here.
