Coming Up Next…

 

We’ll be at the Love Your Weymouth Festival on 13th February – come and say hello!

WHAT WE DO

Information

Check out our ever-growing range of short articles on various aspects of the climate and nature crisis. They take just 5 minutes to read and contain plenty of facts, solutions and information that you may not have come across before. You can find them under the “Resources” page.

Events

Keep an eye out for our events at various venues throughout the town. Our hope is that they will always be fun but also demonstrate some of the ways we can change how we do things to protect the planet. In the past we have hosted (amongst other things) toy swaps, clothes swaps, talks, workshops, community assemblies, arts and crafts events and film nights.

Projects

We also run some longer-term projects, including a network for local food growers, a spoken word night and a community renewable energy scheme. Please check the project pages for the latest news and do get involved if you can. If you have your own idea for a project we would be happy to help you get it up and running.

Hub

We are constantly expanding our list of organisations and individuals who are taking action. We aim to help people connect with each other, work together and share ideas, resources and people. This would be made easier with a property we could use as a physical hub and we are on the lookout for town centre premises which are available on a rent-free or rates-only basis.
