Our planet faces significant threats from the impact of climate change – these are a consequence of the actions of recent and our generations. We need to change – quickly and significantly. Please consider what YOU can do.
Building on our recent experience of learning about the levels of plastic waste we create – a group from St. Mary’s, Wendover has challenged itself to launch a community-wide initiative to champion effective action in our village that will make a real contribution to combatting climate change. We want this to be a broad and diverse group, far beyond the church and churchyard!
We need volunteers who are prepared to bring passion, energy and enthusiasm to get things done – who are prepared to respond in a way that recognises this for the emergency that it is. Expertise and skills are welcome – but definitely not essential. We need to do some research, learn from others and get on with it! Learning ourselves and then teaching and encouraging our families, friends and neighbours.
Ideas already being discussed include;
- Tree planting
- Car share scheme
- Alternative energy technology
- Vegetable based cookery
- Improved recycling
- Campaigning locally and nationally
We see these volunteers forming a “core team” who will act as examples to others; leading workshops, organising campaigns, running rotas, being communication champions, generating social media publicity, identifying areas for tree planting, etc. Could this be you??
If you are interested to find out more and see how you could be involved, then please attend an open meeting on Tuesday 18th February, 7.30pm, St. Mary’s Church Centre, Church Lane, HP22 6NL.
