The Climate Event – Fighting Climate Change Together
Saturday 26 October, 10am-3pm, Victoria Hall, Akeman Street. Tring.
Tring Town Council, in collaboration with Tring in Transition, Extinction Rebellion Tring, and Green Tring.
We are in the midst of rapid global climate breakdown, and a sixth mass extinction, of our own making. To avert the worst consequences of this “existential threat” (UN Secretary General), we must “act now with determination and urgency” (Sir David Attenborough).
Huge changes are needed to safeguard our children’s futures, and the futures of other species. Some of those changes we can make as individuals, some require governments to act, and some we can do as local communities.
Come and find out what your local community is already doing to fight climate change; learn the scientific truth about the situation; discover what we as individuals can do…..
Let’s work together to make Tring a leading light in fighting climate change and becoming a sustainable community for the future.
There will be stalls, talks, information, networking opportunities, and family-friendly activities. Local businesses, groups, organisations and schools will have the opportunity to exhibit what they are doing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase sustainability, care for the local ecology, and reduce single-use plastic and other forms of waste.
Everyone is welcome to visit and admission is free.
Can you help?
Are you doing something that you are proud of and are willing to share? Opportunities include: a table-top exhibition/stall, a talk (approx. 10 mins), a poster/flyer. There is no charge to exhibitors.
The organisers will be trying to minimise paper and plastic waste so will have a space for you to display flyers for people to photograph rather than to take away. They are also be looking for volunteers to help on the day in a variety of roles.
If you can help out on the day with a stall, presentation, poster display, instore display or volunteering, please contact Tring Town Council by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with further details or call 01442 823347.
