Creating a Plan for a Zero Carbon South Yorkshire

We are developing a multi-million pound partnership bid to the National Lottery Climate Action Fund, to develop community solutions to climate change and carbon reduction across South Yorkshire. 

The National Lottery have awarded us an initial development grant and we kick-started this 18 month development phase with our visioning event ‘Imagine Zero Carbon South Yorkshire’. To find out more about that event click here

At our December event, Create Zero Carbon South Yorkshire, we thought about what actions need to be taken to make this vision a reality. Over fifty people came and contributed.

Inspired by the vision created at the previous meeting, we worked in groups looking at 4 different strategies: Public Engagement; Citizen Education & Decision Making;  Advocacy & Activism; and Carbon Reduction.

We want to inspire and enable everyone in South Yorkshire to reduce carbon emissions. 

You don’t need to be a climate-led organisation to get involved – we welcome all organisations who are committed to finding ways to reduce carbon emissions to make lives better for everyone.

We realise that not everyone who wanted to was able to attend these events. If you would like to add your voice, please fill in this Google Form by Monday 8th February.
