Concerned about climate impacts like increasing heat waves, rising sea levels, and the threat to Cornwall communities?

Come to our Community Climate Talk at The Cornish Bank, Falmouth, on Monday August 22nd and join the discussion to find out how we can change things for the better.

The event, will start at 6.30pm and will include a half hour talk, followed by short stories from local people about how the climate crisis has affected them and why they are taking action to improve things.

Free vegan food will be provided afterwards with time to mingle, chat with other concerned people, and ask questions of Dr Cox and the other local speakers.

The event is expected to finish around 9pm and the bar will be open for anyone who wants to stay.

Dr Emily Cox, a social scientist who specialises in public attitudes on climate and energy, will speak at the event. She says we need to “feel empowered” to respond to the crisis and “create the change that we need to see.”

Olympic sailor Laura Baldwin, a climate campaigner with Ocean Rebellion, who has planted thousands of trees through her organisation Portland for the Planet, will also talk about her hopes for the future.

Laura, who joined the G7 protests in St Ives and Falmouth last June, said: “For me the climate crisis is now. It’s real. I’m acutely aware of it because I have family and friends affected around the world.”
