We have committees set up to address climate change issues and a dedicated officer who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. All climate issues are discussed within the Town Development Committee, minutes of which can be found here.
Together we can make a difference. The things we do in our daily lives – how we travel and power our homes, the stuff we buy and then dispose of are all affecting climate change.
Making simple, everyday changes can help save money, create healthier lives and reduce our carbon footprint.
PeCAN is helping Petersfield and surrounding villages to reduce carbon emissions and protect nature. Contact them directly for their expert advice.
If 10 million households turned down the flow temperature on their combi boilers to 60 degrees celsius or below, this would wipe £1 billion off UK energy bills and save 1.7 million tonnes of carbon emissions – the equivalent of nearly six million transatlantic flights Find out how to turn down the flow temperature on your combi boiler HERE. As featured in PeCAN’s October Newsletter.
On Sunday 17th July 2022 Petersfield Climate Action Network (PeCAN) together with Petersfield Town Council (PTC) held Petersfield’s first ever Eco Fair!
It was a fun, informative day out for all the family where you could get tips and ideas for reducing plastic use and your carbon footprint, whether it be by saving energy in your home, upcycling those clothes you no longer want or by getting back on your bike. Learning how you could help increase biodiversity with good gardening practice, or by letting your garden grow a little wilder.
There were talks, an art exhibition, children’s activities, and live music throughout the day, with food, drink and locally brewed beer as well as stalls selling items which were ethically sourced, using minimum packaging.
Visitors were encouraged to walk or cycle and to avoid waste by bringing reusable cups and bottles for drinks. The event was run using batteries charged by renewable energy and bike racks were available.
