Reducing your personal environmental footprint

We'll kick off with a look at the average Cumbrian resident’s carbon footprint. That's the amount of greenhouse gases each of us is responsible for and which aspects of our lives they come from.

Then we’ll take you through some of the support and funding available to you to help you take action. 

You'll then have a chance to discuss your own ideas, aspirations and the challenges you are facing, and we will help you work out how to move forward.

This might be around your home energy, your travel, the things you buy, the food you eat – whatever it is you would like to discuss.   

Here's the session at a glance: 

  • Introductions, Cumbrian carbon footprint explanation and general advice (20 mins) 
  • Break-out room discussions - personalised support, advice and Q&A (30 mins) 
  • Feedback to whole group (10 mins) 
  • Optional extended discussion for those who wish to continue (30 mins) 

We're able to offer this event free of charge thanks to support from South Lakeland District Council and Electricity North West.

Number of places

There are just 16 places at this event, to allow personalised discussions during the break-out sessions.


This event is only open to people living in South Lakeland district and in the communities of Keswick, Alston Moor and Halton-with-Aughton. That's because it's part of funded projects in these areas.   


Before the event, you may wish to try our free and easy-to-use carbon footprint calculator, which will help identify the areas of your life that have the greatest impact on climate change. You may also wish to have a look at the Sustainable Living Guide section on our website.

Meet the advisers

Sharing their expertise on reducing the environmental impact of different aspects of your life are CAfS project managers Molly Hogg, Roe Baker and Tina Holt.

They'll be supported by members of community sustainability groups, who will be able to tell you about what’s happening in your area and will bring extra ideas about low-carbon living.
