Cumbria Sustainability Network Meeting

Fri, 28/04/2017 - 13:00 to 17:00

There is a huge amount going on in Cumbria to reduce emissions, including some community projects now generating renewable energy, very active food projects and comprehensive local sustainability plans.

Help us work better together at this meeting of sustainability groups from across the county. Please contact if you're planning on coming. Let's drive a shift to a zero-carbon Cumbria.

    • 1-2pm: Lunch and mapping ‘who is doing what’ in Cumbria
    • 2-2.45pm: What is working / what isn't working around the county? Any lessons to share, any projects to expand or replicate?
