This amazing Climate Vision initiative is drawing to a close. “I should have done more” – I bet all four of us think that – but we, in fact everyone concerned, done good! (not least the 4,000+ Cornish citizens who took the pledge). Continue reading Will there be closure?
The conclusion of the COP21 climate talks were on my mind yesterday, as I travelled to Truro and read updates from Paris on the train.
Fellow cyclist, Euan McPhee and I were ‘completing the circle’ by handing a copy of the Carbon Logic Report 2015 to Labour MEP Clare Moody outside Truro Cathedral, where the Climate Vision Footsteps to Copenhagen 2009 project, and our ride, began. Continue reading Completing the Circle
What an extraordinary day and a half in Paris.
Coincidences and connections abound, sparking emotions and flooding ideas flow through the crowds. We talk we listen we gather, come together and divide. Continue reading Another world is possible
Well a couple of weeks silence here, not because there is nothing to say, but more because we all needed a chance to re-group and catch our breath and then before we knew it the Solstice and SantaFest were upon us.
Expect some more thoughtful reactions to the Paris outcomes on here in due course and also details and ideas of ways to take things forward. Over the next couple of months we are planning various Report Back events at which we will talk about why we went, what we did, who we met, what happened, and what needs to happen now.
The first of these is in Launceston on Wednesday 30th December at 7pm in the Liberty Suite, Northgate Street. All welcome and there will be three of us there – it is a bit far for Ewan to come over from Somerset and he has a prior engagement. Continue reading Life Goes On
So what was it all about then? Last night we had a “Report Back” meeting in Launceston. The attendance wasn’t huge but three of us – myself, Euan and Ricky – got together to talk through how it came to happen, why we set off, what we did on the way, what happened when we got there and then have a bit of a discussion about what we learnt and what happens next.
We will be running more of these sessions as opportunity and demand arises – there are plans for Plymouth and possibly Exeter and Truro/Falmouth in mid-Feb and if you’d like one or more of us us to come and talk the talk in your town then please do get in touch.
