Environment & Climate Change

We are a lively group looking at climate change and the environment. This is probably the biggest issue facing us today and particularly for our children and grandchildren’s generations. We try to strike a balance between looking at becoming more familiar with the big issues and considering the practical steps we can all take. For example, recent sessions have covered recycling of plastics on a day-to-day basis and how to refill rather than replace where possible. We also discussed an overview of all the many new technologies for renewable energy generation and their likelihood, costs and timescales. Also, inviting a local school so we can listen to younger people’s view about what our generation can do.

Upcoming sessions will include a visit to the Sustainability Centre in East Meon and a talk by a u3a member on his thinking behind installing a heat pump and buying an electric car.

We will also be working with other organisations such as Petersfield u3a and Eco Rother Action to raise awareness on the key issues. Our group has also been invited to participate in Midhurst Town Council’s Sustainability Day in July.

Meetings are held every third Thursday of the month at 10.30am in the Old Library, Knockhundred Row, Midhurst, which offers excellent facilities. To join or for further information please contact the Group Leader, Philip Watts by clicking on his name.
