Experiments in Democracy

At the beginning of March 2016 we held a number of events around 'experiments in democracy', talks to inspire new ways of thinking about democratic participation.

We have a great set of videos from the main speaker event and a set of notes from the open discussion. If you were inspired by these talks and want to stand as a local candidate in upcoming elections, Marie-Louise Holland has offered to provide advice

These events were organised with 38 Degrees Cambridge, Pivotal - Cambridge Festival of Change, and Transition Cambridge.

Join the Energy Group!

One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.

The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.

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!
