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.

Cambridge City Council, Cambridge Carbon Footprint, Cambridge Sustainable Food and Transition Cambridge are jointly hosting this event which will give insight into the landscape of climate action in the Cambridge community.
Following the fast-paced PechaKucha format, and using the ethos to 'talk less, show more', the event will consist of a number of stalls to explore and a series of exciting mini-talks to give a snap-shot of local community projects happening across Cambridge.
The talks will begin at 11:00. You will hear about a variety of different community projects in Cambridge covering: Reducing energy; Making things last longer; Enhancing nature; Sustainable food, and Taking community action
There will also be stalls, open from 10.40am.
Please register to guarantee your place, but walk-ins will be welcome if there is room.

You're very welcome to come along to discuss topics related to climate, nature, the environment, books, and much more! Please come even if you haven't read the book, to chat and think about different topics and see where the discussion takes us. Join us on 18 October when we'll be discussing "Together" by Ece Telmelkuran, a Turkish journalist, activist and author, who "provides an inspiring manifesto for change, reveals fresh possibilities for the better world we might want to live in, and gives us a new vocabulary for the political action that the 21st century asks of humankind". Currently we are meeting online. Book through Eventbrite (we'll then send you a zoom link). Any questions? Please get in touch with Meg. 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.
We have been contacted about looking after a very small growing space (mostly pots) near the Milton Road/Highworth Avenue roundabout. The area is frequented by elderly people who aren't very mobile and would enjoy seeing some thriving plants. If you are a keen gardener and live near there, please get in touch - thanks!

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. You can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Thank you!
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.
