7-8pm March 17th 2021
Join us for an evening of conversation, information and local encounters with people passionate about their community and the planet.
Climate Action East Linton (CAEL) consists of a friendly, informal group of people living in the East Linton area who care deeply about the climate and biodiversity crises. We have a small steering group, specific projects under way, and teams working on particular themes and activities. We have about a hundred members in total. Anyone is welcome to join and get involved as much or little as they want. We have found that in coming together and working on positive things we feel less powerless.
CAEL is an affiliated member of Sustaining Dunbar, and benefits from sharing ideas, resources and experience.
CAEL’s aspirations https://www.cael.community/mission-statement
CAEL aims to facilitate activities in the East Linton area which enable low carbon lifestyles in the face of the climate crisis and which help our local natural world flourish in the face of the biodiversity crisis. We have a number of exciting projects and activities either ongoing or planned.
What CAEL intends to cover in the hour
During the hour you will have the opportunity to hear from some key people involved in CAEL, how CAEL has evolved and some of the activities and projects it has been working on.
In particular you will hear more about CAEL’s ideas for a wildlife network through gardens; how we are working collaboratively with a local landowner to plant a new wood for biodiversity; a letter that has been prepared for the Scottish Government on agriculture; and how we have begun to work with young people locally. You will be given the opportunity to ask questions along the way. We look forward to meeting you. Register HERE.
Please note that a Zoom link to the event will be emailed to registered participants two days before the event.
This event is part of sustaining Dunbar’s series of community engagement events associated with the John Muir, Earth-Planet, Universe outdoor exhibition currently on display at the Dunbar Battery. Find our more about the What If? project.
