Nailsworth businesses and residents challenged to reduce carbon

An organisation set up in the wake of the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce carbon emissions is setting local people the challenge of cutting their carbon consumption.

Nailsworth Climate Action Town Group (NCAT) is putting on a programme of family-friendly activities on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June, including a film "Demain/Tomorrow" and practical demonstrations of what can be done as individuals, households and businesses to save carbon, energy and money.

The action will all take place at the Arkell Community Centre in the town. "Demain" is a feel-good film showing showing solutions in 10 countries. The must-see film will be shown at 7pm on the 22nd. 

On 23rd June, from 12pm to 4pm, there will be advice on practical action such as keeping our homes warm, how to save money and carbon and a chance to say what you are already doing and to pledge action. The afternoon will have low carbon food by the Canteen, children's crafts, voting on our primary school children's logo designs for the "Nailsworth Bag", an art exhibition, action on plastics and much more.

Under the Paris Climate Agreement, the government committed the UK to urgently reduce carbon dioxide emissions and avert harmful global warming. Towns in the UK and globally are working to reduce their carbon footprints and Nailsworth is no exception.
