December 2018 – Climate Emergency Vigil, Wallbridge/Rowcroft, Stroud –

The Vigil is taking a break for the time being. Further details of other kinds of events and actions will follow in due course.





Mon 4 March, 7.30 p.m., Transition Stroud Community Energy Action Group.

Meeting at the Ale House, Stroud. The main item on the agenda will be a discussion about how we can play our part in unlocking the flow of low carbon projects in the district, which will be essential for achieving Stroud District Council’s aspiration for carbon neutrality by 2030 and is a key feature of the new Gloucestershire Energy Strategy.

We will be discussing which initiatives should be undertaken and looking for volunteers (!), so please schedule some time to read the paper (contact details for this – see below).

If you can’t make the meeting, but would like to discuss the issues raised please get in contact (see below).

Finally, note that the Green Alliance has recently published a community energy manifesto. This calls on the Government to recognise the role of community energy in meeting the UK’s carbon reduction targets, and proposes ways in which Government should help local energy projects thrive and achieve their full potential.
