New - Sussex Green Ideas
online Zoom event on the
3rd Wednesday of every
month 7- 8pm
Sussex Green Ideas builds on the work of both
the online Climate Cafe and Horsham Future Forum, which it replaces. It will
continue to wrestle with potential ways to reduce our impact on the climate
and the natural world. Going on-line during the pandemic helped the community
of activists across Sussex (and particularly Horsham District) to keep in
touch and learn from each other. We want to keep this, even as we restart
local face to face activities.
We will have a speaker from a local
organisation every other month. In between, we will have a networking meeting
to discuss the progress of various Sussex initiatives, focusing on Horsham
District and what we can each learn from them.
The meetings will be interesting and
useful to both current and future activists!
People who have previously attended the
Horsham Future Forum can use the same Zoom details used for that monthly
event. New attendees need to book via Eventbrite, then going forward can use
the same monthly Zoom meeting details.
Here’s the schedule so far:
- May 19th – introductions to all the organisations that want to
be involved and hearing a brief update on their current activities.
- June 16th – short talks from two or three organisations with
current projects that they want to share in more detail.
- July 21st – will include feedback from a couple of Author
Evenings organised by Steyning Green Books – https://greeningsteyning.org/greenbooks/. We’ll discuss what we can learn from the recently
published books by Chris Goodall “What We Need To Do Now – for a Net
Zero Future” and Rob Hopkins “From What Is to What If”.
- There will be no August session, but we will evaluate – and, depending on the evaluation,
share plans for September and after.
