2019 – 2020 Conversation Evenings: Climate
October 22 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST
Tuesday October 22 at 8 pm in The Rose, Stapleford
This year’s 2G3S Conversation Evenings will all be on the theme of the climate crisis. We start off by welcoming Pippa Heylings, Chair of South Cambridgeshire District Council Climate and Environment Advisory Committee.
Last November, members of all parties at South Cambridgeshire District Council unanimously backed a motion put forward by Pippa proposing that “South Cambs shows responsible climate leadership by supporting the transition to zero carbon by 2050 in the next Local Plan.” This pledge is more ambitious than the Government’s national target of an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by that date.
Pippa told us “We are facing a climate emergency and have limited time to act. We’re already feeling the effects of climate change in the UK through the increased frequency and intensity of storms, flooding and heatwaves which are putting extra strains on our services. We’re also experiencing growing problems with water scarcity and air pollution.”
This open conversation evening will be a chance to discuss how South Cambridgeshire and its parishes can ensure that new homes, jobs and services will support this commitment to making South Cambridgeshire Carbon-neutral by 2050.
Join us for a drink and some interesting but informal discussion! We’ll be in the small room to the left of the main entrance.
