We’re really excited to announce, along with our Zero Carbon Cumbria partners,  that we are are launching a new online chat to explore challenges, barriers, opportunities and solutions in response to the climate crisis.

The informal events will be a conversation style; guest speakers with a wide range of experience and experts who can answer questions. And at just half an hour long they will be easy to catch up with in your break.

Each Climate Cafe will have it’s own theme, and they will be recorded to listen to or watch at a later date.

Nigel Jenkins, Zero Carbon Cumbria’s Events and Training Coordinator explains the idea behind the cafes, “We’ll hear from inspirational guests already working on positive solutions to help us reach net zero, who’ll share their knowledge and expertise as we broaden the climate conversation across Cumbria.

The regular cafes will be great opportunities to ask questions, share ideas, and get connected into effective climate responses for Cumbria.

They’ll also support the work of the broad-based Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership, which is fully committed to a countywide net zero target of 2037, and to ensuring that the zero carbon transition is fair and inclusive.”

The first café – on the 12 October – will find out more about the compelling case for rapid emission reduction, the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership’s ambitious commitment to reaching countywide net zero by 2037, and the practical challenges and opportunities this presents for Cumbria.
