Community and Civic Action Day
Come along and explore the linkages between climate change and our consumer lifestyles, our transport choices, and our depletion of biodiversity. Find out what local groups are doing to address these challenges and what action you can take to make a difference. There will be special activities for children and young people.
The event is being organised by the Canterbury Society and by the Community and Civic Action sub-group of the Canterbury Climate Action Partnership (CCAP). You can come to all or part of the day. Refreshments will be available from the College café, so do come along and take part in whatever interests you.
