Get involved with local climate action
Climate Emergency Community Partnership
Forest of Dean Climate Action has been established to coordinate a district wide community-based response to the climate emergency. It will bring together communities, businesses and organisations across the district to deliver community climate action through collaboration, empowerment and knowledge sharing, with the imperative of driving the district to become carbon neutral by 2030.
The partnership recently launched a new website where members of the community can sign up to a newsletter and learn more about how they could get involved, and groups and organisations can sign up to be partners.
Past Local Events
COP26: What does it mean for the Forest of Dean District?
In partnership with Green Futures Network we hosted an online event on 14 December 2021 for district, parish and town councillors and officers, public, private and community organisations. The event explored the outcomes of COP26 and what it means for local climate action in the district. It also included presentations by 4 expert panellists.
A recording of the panel discussion can be found here:
