Worthing Climate Action Network is a constituted community volunteer organisation, based in Worthing, Sussex. We get up to lots of different actions and events, to campaign for action on climate change and promote different ways people can get involved in sustainability.
"Climate Conversations" is our latest project, with the idea being to provide space for the public to talk about climate change and what it means. We are particularly targeting people who don't know much about the issue, or who find it too large and complex to know where to begin taking action. Our local council have kindly provided us with a venue for free - so we are looking to cover the cost of our other resources.
The event will be held across a weekend (20/21 July) at Colonnade House, an art gallery in Worthing. We need to cover the cost of public liability insurance and printing of A0-sized heavy-duty posters. The grand total is £860!
Worthing CAN is currently seeking funding and a bank account. As an ethical organisation, we are (unsurprisingly) quite particular about who we will bank with, so this is taking a little longer than expected. We expected the funding application to go in once the bank account was in place. However, this opportunity came up quickly and we just had to go for it!
If you can help support this band of volunteers in its aim of reaching out to our community to help them take climate action, we all really appreciate it. Thanks folks :-)
