With CAT’s annual conference fast approaching, programme organiser Tanya Hawkes gives us a taste of what’s in store.
From saving energy to reducing waste packaging, sharing living space has the potential to reduce our environmental impact. CAT Information Officer Mim Davies explores the possibilities.
CAT’s Paul Allen joined the International Network For Sustainable Energy (INFORSE) in Denmark to share the latest Zero Carbon Britain research on a global platform. The 25th anniversary meeting brings together organisations from across the world to explore the transition to sustainable energy, community power and the development of new initiatives and projects.
How three people are shaping a more sustainable world, in their own words…
We are extremely proud of our biodiversity here at CAT and are very lucky to be surrounded by such rich habitats every day. We caught up with Alex Chadwick, a Conservation Development Assistant and part of the woodland team here at CAT, to learn a little bit more about how the site is managed for nature and to find out what wildlife to look out for at this time of year.
The shift to zero carbon is one of the most exciting opportunities in human history. It offers huge benefits in better housing, affordable and accessible transport, reduced obesity, improved health, cleaner air and more jobs.
Everyone is talking about rewilding at the moment.
The debate around rewilding is shaking up the conservation sector – and public interest is huge – with a growing movement of people advocating the restoration of our degraded ecosystems.
Imagine a world where we have broken our ties with fossil fuels… Our towns and cities are awash with innovative practical projects that are rebuilding our relationship with food, energy, transport and buildings, openly supported by the wider economic and political systems. Such innovation has unleashed all kinds of co-benefits, from cleaner air to better diets, more jobs and income arising across the local area.
Our values and worldviews are central to how we comprehend the world around us, and how we see our place in it. Understanding how this shapes our attitudes and actions towards nature could be a key part of facilitating the shift to zero carbon.
Would you like to be able to walk and cycle more easily and safely? To breathe clean air and enjoy a reliable, affordable public transport system?
Transforming our transport system from one that is highly polluting and heavily reliant on fossil fuels into one that is clean, green, reliable and affordable is a challenge, but it can be done. Here is a selection of ideas on how we can create a better transport system that’s not only healthier for us all, but is compatible with a zero carbon future.
