Climate Corner: A green forum for Beeston

Last month saw the launch of a new Facebook group for Beeston Climate Hub.

This is a forum for anyone in Beeston who is interested in reducing waste, creating more green spaces, reducing fuel bills, food security, warmer homes, better air quality, safer streets, composting, green energy, supporting your local economy… anything that could create a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Beeston.

Questions, ideas, and feedback on issues are all welcome; and community organisations are invited to post on events and activities. If you want to start a project and are looking for support or want to find a project or group to join the Climate Hub can help.

Check out the ‘Guides’ section where you can find information on a wide range of topics including recycling, food, composting, energy saving tips, nature, plus activities and games for children. Information will be added to the guides each week, and you can post or message about information you would like to see.

Climate Hub live chat events will be coming soon! Find out more about how to get involved with developing a climate strategy for Beeston or suggest a topic for discussion. Look out for posts about on the Beeston Climate Hub page.

The page is also for celebrating the amazing work already going on in Beeston, incredible community litter picking initiatives, food growing, community gardening groups and food clubs. The new CRAP (Conserving Resources Associating People) Facebook group already has over 1,000 members saving waste from landfill, sharing resources, and helping to keep our streets cleaner.

So if you live, work or study in Beeston, or are an organisation working in the area please join us. Search for Beeston Climate Hub on Facebook.
