Our Environment

Climate emergency, Biodiversity, Marine pollution ... these all effect our community and our everyday lives.

This page will try to keep up to date with the efforts of the parish Climate Group and with Local Council initiatives to tackle these issues.  We also hope to be able to post details of anyone undertaking or organising beach cleans & litter picks - let us know details as the more the merrier!

Cornwall Climate Action Network

There are now over 50 climate/environmental action groups, spread across Cornwall, doing fantastic work. They have joined forces as the new Cornwall Climate Action Network, to support each other and work together in response to the Climate Emergency and to reach Cornwall's carbon neutral target.

The Cornwall Climate Action Network would like to understand what Cornwall’s community climate action groups need support with and for groups to learn from each other and help each other.

The Cornwall Climate Action Network is also keen to be guided by what the network groups need and is looking to hold an event initially for networking and shared learning, possibly in May/June. There must be other groups that aren’t in the network and it would be great for them to join the network and for the network to hear from them too. 

Please also direct any climate action groups in your area to the Cornwall Climate Action Network Facebook group.

For more information, email Cornwall Climate Action Network (Cornwall CAN) on cornwallcancan@gmail.com

With energy and food prices going up and climate change on all our minds, it's never been more important to try to save energy, save money and lower our carbon emissions.

Around 21% of the UK's carbon emissions come from our homes. There are lots of ways to cut down on the energy we use - and save on the cost of our bills. You can get more information on this and other ways to cut carbon emissions, on the Carbon Neutral Cornwall Hive. 

Help is available if you are struggling to pay your bills - visit our Support for Residents page for more information.  
Please don't put off contacting someone if you have money worries, there are many organisations providing help and advice.
