Faced with uncertain energy prices and climate change, our response is to build a stronger, more versatile community – a community with the capacity to adapt to whatever happens and where we can be happy and healthy.
All of our events will follow the current local coronavirus regulations, and most of of our events are currently online. More

COP26 starts at the end of October - will we get real climate action this time? At this meeting we will discuss national/international policy where we are now, what could happen and additional benefits from a thriving low carbon economy. Then we can spread the word to our friends and make sure our political leaders understand too - what we want to happen and why this is so important.

As people around the world are rising up in defence of life on Earth, we are simultaneously witnessing widespread denial and apathy about the climate and environmental crises, even while being confronted with news of heatwaves and floods on an almost daily basis. Just now, on top of this, we also have to deal with a global pandemic! If, like many others, there are times when you feel overwhelmed, angry, fearful or numb in the face of the environmental crises, this workshop is for you. Taking time to acknowledge and honour our (often conflicting) emotions in relation to the global challenges is a very powerful practice, particularly when we are witnessed and supported by the presence of others. This experiential workshop will serve to reconnect us with our enthusiasm and agency, and inspire a sense of belonging and renewed hope for the future. Click here for further information and to book a ticket. The workshop will be facilitated by Kim Ashton and Anna McIvor. Suggested donation £20 (or whatever you can afford). Workshop will be outdoors with a fire. More...

An important part of our response to climate change is to contribute as little as possible to it, and a large part of that is weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The energy group aims to do whatever we can to save energy and to generate renewable energy to replace fossil fuels .
Over the years we have distilled a lot of online advice about this which you can use and learn from. There tips on things you can do at home, insulation, renewable energy like heat pumps and wood stoves and, since climate change is going to bring us warmer weather, on how to keep cool. Look at our homepage for details of the next meeting or get in touch.
The energy group have a completely new energy advice tool which you can use to get ideas for improving your home. The suggestions update dynamically according to your aims (indoor air quality, keeping warm, reducing bills, carbon emissions, keeping cooling in summer) and what you already have in your home. Please do try it out. More...

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.
Are you a budding photographer, journalist or event coordinator? Have a few hours to help out and meet great people like you? We always have opportunities for you to get involved over here on our volunteering page.
