RESIDENTS who are concerned about climate change are being encouraged to attend regular meetings to discuss how their carbon footprint can be reduced.

RESIDENTS who are concerned about climate change are being encouraged to attend regular meetings to discuss how their carbon footprint can be reduced.

The 'Carbon Conversations' group explores the complexities of moving towards a more sustainable, low-carbon society and how change can be achieved.

According to organisers, most participants reduce their carbon emissions by one tonne immediately after the programme, and in the long-term, often halve their carbon footprints.

This supportive group, which meets fortnightly in Bishopston, is aimed at anyone who is concerned by climate change and wishes to make practical and behavioural changes in preparing for a low-carbon future.

The themes for each of the meetings are low carbon futures, home energy, travel and transport, food and water, and consumption and waste.

The group is run by psychotherapist and writer Kamalamani, and green accountant and software writer Suhada, who are both passionate about tackling climate change.

The group will consist of six people meeting for two hours fortnightly on a Wednesday evening at 7.30pm.

It costs £25 per person and includes all course materials – and teas, coffees and biscuits.

Meeting dates are September 2, 16, and 30, October 14 and 28. The date for the sixth session is agreed among the group.
