VCSE Climate Change Forum

We recently hosted a special forum which focused on climate change and its effects on community health and wellbeing.

Delegates attending the event at Magdalen Farm, near Chard, heard fascinating presentations from Jake Burnyeat (Burnham and Weston CIC), Jon Doyle (Somerset County Council), Pip Tucker (Somerset Public Health), Mickey Green (Somerset Waste Partnership) and Steve Mewes (Somerset Wildlife Trust). You can download the presentations here.

Attendees also took part in group discussions on how climate change is effecting the communities they support, and how, as organisations, we can help to mitigate the impacts. You can download the notes from the discussion groups here.

The event was kindly sponsored by Burnham and Weston Energy CIC. There was overwhelming support for making it an annual occurrence.
