Wivey Action on Climate covers Wiveliscombe and the 10 Parishes area and welcomes new members and guests at our meetings.
Since being set-up in October 2014, we have organised many activities and meetings. We had a guest speaker from the Met Office in January 2015 and, with neighbouring groups, helped organise the Climate Change Hustings in Wellington in April 2015. Other well-attended meetings have included a talk on tidal laggoon power and a film show.
We welcome the UN's new global agreement in December 2015, but much more remains to be done and we have lots planned for 2016.
Our aims are:
a) To raise awareness of climate change, the contribution of human carbon emissions and their effects on the life of our community;
b) To positively engage and work with local people, businesses and community organisations in the Wiveliscombe area on climate change and solutions;
c) To promote and support low carbon and sustainable living and working in the Wiveliscombe area;
d) To campaign at local, national and international levels for sustainable solutions to climate change which improve human well-being and protect the natural world.
