Event Details

My carbon footprint is 50% less than the average person in the UK. Even so I still find more ways to limit my carbon emissions.

  • What is your carbon footprint?
  • What are you doing to limit your carbon emissions?

This conversation has four objectives:

  1. To understand how greenhouse gases contribute to global warming and climate change.
  2. To learn what a carbon footprint is.
  3. How to use simple tools to measure your carbon footprint.
  4. To gain ideas about how you can lower your carbon footprint, including sustainability swaps.

When your grandchildren ask you what you did to stop the Great Climate Change Disaster- what will you say?
