Environment & Climate Change
Since the group started up in the late autumn 2020 we have had some far-ranging and deeply interesting presentations and discussions on topics such as alternative sources of power, farming and population expansion to name just three. Next month we will be visiting Croydon Climate Action's Big Green Week Festival to see what local businesses are doing to promote a greener and more sustainable future.
If you'd like to join please email - firstname.lastname@example.org
We meet on zoom on the third Thursday evening at 7.30pm.
THE GROUP’S AGREED PURPOSES ARE:
To promote group members’ own learning of and awareness about relevant issues: local and global, which could lead to individual and/or group action
To promote learning and generate awareness and enthusiasm amongst Croydon u3s members
So far, we are exploring our interests to work out how we can best further the aims of the group.
We are collecting empty tablet strip packs and taking them to Superdrug. Superdrug is working in conjunction with TerraCycle who will convert the packaging into reusable raw materials using its unique recycling process – preventing empty packs spending a lifetime in landfill. What’s more, Superdrug is supporting Marie Curie as each empty blister packet that gets recycled as part of the ‘Little Packs, Big Impact’ scheme. It's easy - it's free and it's a double whammy - recycling and supporting a fantastic charity too. Can you help? Please start saving yours. It really is amazing as to how they add up very quickly.
- New members will be very warmly welcomed
