Our Woking, Our World March 14 2009

Our Woking, Our World –An afternoon to develop community action to tackle climate change

Provisional programme and registration details are here.

Our Woking, Our World’ is an opportunity to meet with others in Woking and start a journey together to create a beacon town for sustainability, somewhere where green living is celebrated, low carbon enterprises flourish and every member of our community is working together to ensure we leave our children with a world we would all be happy to inherit.

Join in to create local networks and projects for a sustainable future
Talks, networking, discussions, skill sharing, environment, resource scarcity, information pamphlets
Woking LA21 is hosting an event in March which aims to bring together representatives of a wide range of local community groups such as residents associations, churches, youth groups, sports clubs, allotment associations as well as individuals. The purpose of the event will be to share experiences and ideas in order to promote sustainable initiatives across the Borough, drawing on the interests and community-knowledge of all those who attend. The event will include workshops and speakers from other successful “Sustainable Town” initiatives

We aim for everyone to come away from the event:

  • Having thought more about the relevance of sustainability to you and your group
  • Feeling inspired to take action, knowing you are not alone
  • Knowing how to contact others doing similar things
  • Knowing where to find out more
  • Knowing how to start effecting change
  • Feeling confident about spreading the word to others

For some of us, environmental issues have been a concern for some time. For others, they are becoming a bigger issue as energy and food prices rise. At LA21, we believe that together we can make a difference: that the future of our planet is in all our hands.

We would like to invite you to take part in this event. Attendance is free; all you need is enthusiasm, ideas and a sense of possibility!

The event will be held  on Saturday 14th March 2009 in the Kemp Room of the HG Wells Suite, with registration from 1.30 pm for a start at 2.00. Afternoon tea will be provided. We will aim to finish at 5.30 pm.

Please see here to see the programme and register for the event.

We see this event as just the start. We are aiming to follow up later this year with a community-led month of fun events themed around sustainability and climate change – we hope you will feel inspired to be part of that, and indeed to help us create it.
Woking LA21 (Woking Action for the 21st Century) has been the force behind many of the successful projects you will be familiar with such as Gardening for Life, Woking Green Pages and the Greener Homes Guide, and has run many public meetings and events to help Woking residents live more sustainably.
