We are alive at an extraordinary moment in our shared history, and one which asks us to come together and respond in extraordinary ways. Most people are aware that our planet can not sustain our current way of life, but can feel confused as to what to do about it . This free one day summit aims to bring local individuals; groups; charities; businesses; councillors and organisations together in conversation, learning from existing good practice around the country, and setting up ways of working together for our community and future generations. It will be held in Clitheroe at Trinity Community Hub on Saturday 1st July. The day will provide stimulating speakers, workshops, opportunities for networking and community cohesion , for developing creative ideas, and addressing climate anxiety; all with future generations at the heart of our thinking . Together we are stronger. Together we can create a healthy home and sustainable future.
