About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

Making a World of Difference

Could you go to a workshop on Thursday March 19th in London on behalf of Carbon Cutters?

The Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK) would like to invite you to an exciting one-day workshop for environmental campaigners.

If you are just starting out in campaigning and want to take your work to the next level, this FREE workshop is for you.

The workshop is taking place on Thursday 19th March, from 10am to 5pm at Which?, 2 Marylebone Rd , London NW1 4DF .

SMK will carry out preparation work with each participant in advance of the workshop in order to best understand your needs and and where possible try to incorporate these into the workshop. In addition they will offer follow-up support to each participant, in the form of one-to-one surgery sessions that will reinforce and move forward some of the key learning of the day and where appropriate make links to relevant organisations to encourage alliance building.

The workshop will be facilitated by Tim Helweg-Larsen, Director of the Public Interest Research Centre, and speakers will include:
Dan Glass, Campaigner, Plane Stupid Scotland
Joss Garman, Climate Campaigner, Greenpeace
Sarah Lewis, Freelance Environmental Journalist

Do please forward this email on to environmental campaigners you know and publicise it through any appropriate networks. I have included a poster about the workshop, as well as the draft agenda for the day and a registration form.

Demand is expected to be high so please book your place as soon as possible. The workshop and associated support is FREE of charge.

I hope you are able to attend.

Kind regards
