We meet each month to share information and ideas about living sustainably. This is a chance to talk to like-minded people and find out more. Our members range from professional environmentalists to those of us who are just keen to do what we can. Our meetings are the base from which great things happen and real, positive action is taken. By pooling our knowledge, experiences and time, we can engage with our local councillors and other organisations to discuss what we can do in our town, and plan eco projects and events.
After a catch up on how our various activities and projects are getting on, the meetings usually revolve around a discussion theme, like recycling or gardening for wildlife or how we can reduce our carbon emissions, with practical tips based on local knowledge. Sometimes one of our members with a particular interest or environmental expertise will give a short presentation or talk. Sometimes we have guest speakers from organisations like Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Naturehood or Greenpeace.
While we’re focused on taking positive action to make our town more sustainable, we know not everyone has lots of time to commit. If you’re looking for somewhere to simply talk about how to live more sustainably or just want to chat with other people who care about the environment, you are very welcome to join us. Or perhaps you want to take action and make a difference, then come along to find out what we’re up to and how you can help. Maybe you have a great idea that you'd like to talk to us about. Whatever your age, knowledge or environmental interests you’ll find our meetings are open, non-judgemental and welcoming.
All of our meetings are continuing to take place online. Interested in joining us? Take a look at our Events page for the date of our next meeting and discussion topic.
