People wanting to take an active role to tackle climate change in Stroud can find out more at a workshop being organised by Stroud Town Council.
The Neighbourhood Development Plan Climate Change Workshop is being held at the Subscriptions Rooms in George Street on Wednesday June 12.
The workshop will be run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy and funded by Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
“The workshop will discuss the measures that local people and the Town Council can take through the Neighbourhood Development Plan to address climate change and sustainable energy issues,” said Town Councillor Alan Sage.
“It is open to individuals and groups with an interest in how we can address the challenges of climate change at a local level. We must all do our part to make a difference.”
The Town Council is planning to review the Neighbourhood Development Plan so that it keeps pace the Town Council’s committment to become carbon neutral and to be more pro-active in reducing air pollution and greenhouses gases.
“We hope that the workshop will help the Town Council identify potential projects which could be included in the NDP and to look at how we can take a pro-active approach,” said Councillor Sage.
