As you may be aware, CAP is one of 114 LancsCAN member organisations. Membership has grown significantly since the first Lancashire Community Climate Action Forum last May at Edgehill University which is fantastic.
New LancsCAN Climate Collaboration Workshops… coming soon! Thanks to LancsCAN Co-Leader Kayt Horsley, some money from Lancashire County Council has been secured to organise two or three new LancsCAN Climate Collaboration Workshops for later this year – watch this space!
LancsCAN Lunch & Learn programme After the first highly successful Lunch & Learn event on 25 January hosted by Harvey Hamilton-Thorpe (Ribble Rivers Trust) and presented by Sam Marine and Angela Nagorski (both at Groundwork), more are planned for the rest of the year. Details to follow soon but proposed presentation themes include energy, health (and social prescribing), transport, wildlife, education and volunteering.
