Description

What: Essentially it is about supporting each other to live in a more environmentally friendly way and help avoid catastrophic global warming. Coaley and Uley Climate Action Network helps prioritise initiatives for Coaley and Uley to focus on, and plugs into other groups in the local area for the mutual learning, support, and benefit that can offer.

How: Following a kick off meeting in February 2020, we have identified a number of village priorities and a core team is charge with taking them forward. These are: E-bikes / local transport Energy efficiency and renewable energy Waste reduction Survey of baselining existing behaviors We have also started regular (every quarter) Repair Cafes at Coaley or Uley village hall, and several members created a Bug Hotel with the children of Coaley School during their Environment week in summer 2021.
