When thinking about taking climate action, it can be hard to know where to start. What can you do to have the most impact? 

That’s why H&F Council are offering organisations free use of a carbon tracking app. This has been designed to measuretrack and report on the carbon emissions across your organisation. The app will help to clearly identify actions that need to be taken to lower carbon emissions. 

Interested in the carbon tracking app? Join the H&F Climate Alliance here  

I’d like to invite you and your community to this tiny forest planting day in Normand Park . It is free and suitable for all ages. It’s a great way to get involved in your local area and also a fab way to boost wellbeing. You can sign up by clicking here  but you are also welcome to turn up at any point during the day.
