Last call for Richmondshire climate change project map submissions

A last call for submissions to a project that is drawing up a map of Richmondshire’s climate change projects has gone out.

Community groups and organisations have until Sunday to send their information to environmental science student, Alice Foster.

She is collating a list of local projects contributing to the fight against climate change – including nature based schemes such as tree planting or village allotments; technology based such as solar power; and community schemes such as recycling  or minimising food waste.

Alice is working with Richmondshire District Council as part of the council’s climate change programme – it has set a target to be net carbon neutral in its own activities and operations by 2030 and encourage others to help achieve the same for the district as a whole.

To get involved Alice simply needs brief details of the projects – where it is, what it involves, who is leading it and at what stage it is at.

Just email her at
