Gifts that don't cost the Earth...

...and some Low Carbon Christmas Tips from the Carbon Trust.
Some years ago we put together a list of "Gifts that don't cost the Earth" which was updated with ideas from last year's Mill Road Winter Fair. So take a look to find some inspiration for low carbon Christmas gifts this year! We also found these great tips for a sustainable low carbon Christmas from The Carbon Trust.

Reports from event with Julian Huppert MP

We discussed how we can keep climate change and energy scarcity high up the political agenda, starting with a talk by Julian Huppert (video here), then a question and answer session (voice recording here), finishing with small group discussions (recordings here and photos of the notes sheets from the groups).

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all. However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations. We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!
