Chippenham Climate Focused Area Board Event

6pm – 9pm, Monday 3rd February, at Sheldon School Refectory

Everyone welcome!

This is a special and timely opportunity to find out more about the climate and ecological crisis, meet representatives of local organisations acting for change, and contribute your thoughts about what local government can and should do to tackle the issues.

From 6pm members of numerous local groups with an environmental focus will be exhibiting; keen to explain what they are working on and hoping to achieve, and how people can get involved.

Confirmed exhibitors so far include:

Zero Chippenham (who are coordinating the event)

Chippenham Town Council Climate Emergency Advisory group

Chippenham Cycle Network Development group

Chippenham Extinction Rebellion

MAD about Waste

National Farmers Union

…And we expect more on the night!

From 7pm, the Area Board meeting will begin in the Refectory with a keynote speech by Councillor Richard Clewer, a Wiltshire Council cabinet member with responsibility for Climate Change. 

All attending will then be invited to participate in an informal small group workshop aiming to identify what people think are the main actions and policy leads local government should take, how these can be supported in the community, and which should take most urgent priority.

From 8.30pm, the evening will conclude with the formal business of the Area Board.

We do hope you will join us to support what we hope will be an informative, interactive and inspiring evening for all, on this most crucial of issues.
