Climate Change - what can we do about it?
A day of talks and workshops, discussion and inspiration for action
organised jointly with Ipswich and Diss Area Meeting
Saturday 9th March 2019
Diss Friends Meeting House, 10 Frenze Road IP22 4PA9.30 for 10.00 – 4.30
The 2011 Canterbury Commitment committed Friends in Britain to becoming a low carbon community. We still have quite a way to go. The climate emergency we face means that both determined corporate action and personal behaviour change are necessary if our children and grandchildren are to have a liveable future. There are many constructive things which can be done to help achieve this.
Norfolk and Suffolk Quakers are presenting a day of information and reflection on practical ways forward, with invited speakers from beyond our own circle. The programme will include a talk by Professor John Midwinter FRS, who has developed a deep understanding and extensive knowledge of the subject over many years and presents it in a way all can understand and enjoy, and a series of workshops on practical matters.
The event is free of charge, and drinks will be provided. Please bring your own picnic lunch. If you have clothes, seeds, off-cuts etc, or anything else to swap or pass on please bring them.
No booking necessary but please contact Teresa Belton firstname.lastname@example.org , or 01603 465851if you know you are coming, so that we have an idea of numbers, or if you have any queries.
