About the Event

This is our 2nd meeting of parishes from across the borough of Guildford. The first one was attended by over 40 representatives of parish councils and communities looking for solutions to the issues they face locally in rising to climate and environmental challenges. No need to have joined the first one to attend this, come along and get involved in collaboration between our villages and parishes as we look to improve the health, air quality, and ecosystems of the outskirts of the borough. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Climate change will affect us all, and whilst many council's climate action focus remains on their urban areas, there is plenty that can be done at a hyper local level. Guildford's geography means that many of us live out in the villages on the outskirts of our beautiful borough. This can raise an entirely different set of challenges, which can play an important role in tackling the climate crisis.   

Infrequent public transport, loss of local ecosystems, and flooding are all issues for residents in the outskirts of our beautiful borough, and whilst parish councils may not have the power or funding to counter these issues alone, there is lots that we can do by working together, as communities, and by using convening and lobbying power to ensure that we play as an important role in protecting our planet's future as those in urban areas.   

Join us for a discussion on taking action on your doorstep, to hear from local groups and parishes who have begun taking climate action in their own backyards, and following up on the action points several of us took away from the last meeting.
