HELP US TO HIGHLIGHT THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
Time is running out to prevent runaway global warming and avert an ecological catastrophe.
We aim to inform and mobilise our local community with a public awareness campaign in the run-up to COP 26 in November, when the UK hosts the Annual UN Climate Summit in Glasgow.
We are looking to raise an initial target of £10,000 by October 2021.
Your donations will:
- enable us to produce educational materials for the public and schools,
- help to pay for venues for our events during our Climate Action Week,
- facilitate engagement with our citizens in and around Canterbury,
- assist with the further development of local grassroots projects e.g. the Repair Café, Plastics Free Canterbury, biodiversity projects and work with local schools.
Climate change will affect us, our children, and our grandchildren profoundly.
Canterbury City Council, like many other councils, has declared a Climate Emergency.
All over the world, individuals, organisations, and countries are seeking to reduce carbon emissions and enhance biodiversity.
The lessons of Covid-19 are that global disasters require action by everyone working together in partnership to ensure no one is left behind.
In Canterbury and Kent, our local institutions, business, and communities are taking climate action seriously.
Their work is coordinated by us, the Canterbury Climate Action Partnership, CAAP, – a not-for-profit Community Interest Company aiming to promote Zero Carbon emissions and biodiversity enhancement.
CCAP will hold a Canterbury Climate Action Week, 24-29 October in the run-up to COP26. The week will see public events to engage our citizens about the impact of climate change.
We hope that:
- all CCAP partners will consider a donation to our crowdfunding appeal,
- they will circulate our Appeal to all their members and encourage them to contribute.
- local business and organisations will give generous support, and
- individuals concerned about climate change will also donate whatever they can.
