In the autumn we also arrange talks and lectures by distinguished academics and others about issues relating to climate change.

Speakers in the past have included Sir John Houghton, former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),  broadcaster, author and journalist Mark Lynas, Client Earth boss James Thornton, Alice Hooker Stroud from CAT  and former CEO of Shell Jon Hofmeister.

We also join in with others to push the need for action to reduce carbon emissions so that the next fifty years are merely uncomfortable rather than catastrophic. We arrange technology fairs, ride electric bikes, engage with our MP and even go on the odd national march.
