Residents stage climate change event

Wednesday 22 September 2021

A group of Hertford residents has come together to offer help and advice to those in and around the town who are concerned about climate change but don’t know where to start.

The group are staging and event Hertford and our Changing Climate on Saturday 25th September at the Friends Meeting House and Bircherley Green.

The event aims to be informative, encouraging and enabling to anyone who wants to take steps to start reducing emissions.

More than a dozen stalls around Hertford Town Centre, with electric vehicles and electric bikes on show, plus a variety of talks on making energy savings in the home, reducing waste and water usage, electric vehicles and sustainable food choices. Speakers will include Andrei Lussmann, Simon Smithn and Anna Hughes

A spokesperson for the organisers said, "Awareness is growing of climate change and the need to do things differently as we rise to the huge challenge before us all. It’s not always easy, though, to know quite where to start, and we want to help with that.  Alongside practical information on everything from insulation and composting to electric vehicles and planet-friendly investing, we will include helping visitors to discuss climate change in a constructive way with people around them. Hertford and our Changing Climate is aimed squarely at fostering a spirit of shared positive endeavour as our community moves towards greater sustainability in both individual and larger scale, strategic ways."

Orgsnisers have also set up a website to support the event at www.hacc-herts.org.
