Community Climate Change

Brighton and Hove 1010 and Brighton Peace and Environment Centre are looking for volunteers to take part in a groundbreaking new course that helps communities adapt to and respond positively to climate change.

They are looking for 8-12 people who would be willing to take part in six free evening workshops spread over 10 weeks (September/October 2014). The workshops will cover everything from food, transport, waste, energy and carbon, and will be fun, hands-on and thought-provoking. 

By the end of the course, participants will have developed the leadership and practical skills to:

  • Inspire others to take action on climate change in their community
  • Identify and act on the opportunities to improve homes, neighbourhoods and the city, so they are better adapted to climate change impacts
  • Work with other local people to tackle climate change-related community challenges

This is part of a wider project that comprises four free workshop series in different communities around the city, and one run internally at the council.

No prior knowledge is needed – just an open mind and a willingness to take part.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Flemmich Webb, chair, Brighton and Hove 1010 on webbfreelance[at]mac.com by 21 July.
