A new Climate Action Forum for Lewes District is being created and we would like to invite all those interested to the first meeting on Zoom on Wednesday, 7 October, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The forum is being hosted by 3VA and Sustainable Business Partnership CIC.
This forum aims to achieve the following:
- Maximise opportunities for feedback to Lewes District Council on their Climate Change and Sustainability Framework;
- Support the creation of shared ideas for climate action;
- Enable community involvement in climate action; and
- Develop an ongoing group of interested stakeholders.
We want to provide an opportunity to give voice to, support and develop assets and solutions that lie within our local communities. We recognise that many other organisations and projects are going on already. This forum is created to maximise opportunities for community voice and new collaborative action and we are clear we will not be duplicating what is already there!
We hope people from all parts of our community including local residents, parish and town councils, voluntary & community organisations, businesses, educational establishments, nature groups, and bodies with an interest in agriculture food, health and transport will all feel included and want to get involved. This includes a specific focus on involving and hearing from local young people.
To enable the forum to bring together people and projects, a website and social media presence is being developed to act as a focal point for action and to bring together groups, discussion and practical information. There will also be active recruitment of existing ‘offline’ community groups to reach this those less likely to participate in an online platform.
Come to the first meeting
If you have any queries and/or would like to receive an invitation to the first meeting and be added to the mailing list of people kept informed and involved, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘CLIMATE ACTION FORUM‘ as the subject. You will then receive the Zoom link and password and be kept informed from there. We hope to see many of you on Zoom very soon.
