Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is calling on residents to take part in dedicated ‘climate conversation’ focus groups that will help shape the district council’s climate strategy.

The discussion groups, which will take place online from Monday 3 October, will be based on the results of the Climate Conversation survey carried out among residents and businesses at the start of the year.

The focus groups will be an open discussion about the support people need to make change, fight climate change, and what changes residents would like to see from HDC.

Councilor Lara Davenport-Ray, Executive Climate and Environment Advisor for Huntingdonshire District Council, said: ‘We all want to live in a green and clean environment so we urge our residents to get involved with these groups discussion and to have them tell to help us shape the climate strategy for Huntingdonshire.

“By developing this new strategy, we are laying the foundation for a stronger future for everyone in the district. It’s really important that we develop the climate strategy as a joint effort through ongoing and meaningful engagement with the community.

Panel discussions will explore the relationship between climate change and where we live and the impact on our way of life.

Discussion groups will take place on:

October 3, 7 p.m. – Where we live: How to prepare the places where we live and work for the impact of climate change?

October 4, 7 p.m. – Where we live: How can our natural environment, our green and blue spaces, help us fight climate change?

October 5, 7 p.m. – How do we live: how can we reduce our energy consumption? How can we reuse and recycle to reduce the amount of waste we create?

October 6, 7 p.m. – How we live: how to reduce the impact of our travels? How can we work together as a community to fight climate change?
