361 Energy's story
Themes covered include: carbon footprints, neighbourhood planning, nature, working with businesses, energy efficiency, community energy, transport and tourism. Attendees were provided with a booklet of resources to enable them to reduce carbon emissions and deliver co-benefits in their Towns and Parishes. The workshops are the first step in a programme of ongoing support that will be provided by the Councils, 361 Energy and other partners such as the North Devon Biosphere Reserve.
Useful learnings from 361 Energy
It's easy for people to feel that climate change is too big an issue for them to tackle, and that you need specialist expertise to work with your communities. There are lots of simple things that can be done, and it's inspiring to find out how much Town and Parish Councils are already doing. Building support networks and empowering individuals to work together to take action across many areas is critical to addressing the climate emergency in northern Devon.
