Could you please send these preliminary details to any members of your group who may be interested. Thank you. One Cornwall: One Planet - 25th November..
[Saving the planet for later]

Are you interested in how the new One Cornwall unitary authority will develop strategies to help us all cope with the lifestyle changes that we may have to make if we want to do our bit to reduce our 'greenhouse gas emissions' that scientists tell us are damaging our environment and
influencing changes in our climate - also known as our 'carbon footprint'.
We have recently experienced a substantial rise in fuel prices - at least petrol has made a modest downward turn for a while - but the underlying challenges still remain that we are using fossil fuels faster than we can extract them, bringing the day when only the super-rich can afford them ever nearer. How are our new unitary authority planning to meet the challenges? If you would like to know more, or even have your say, come to the first of two meetings on 25th November - there will be a follow-up meeting next year when the new structure is in being.
Working with the Cornwall Transition Network and Cornwall Community Climate Forum, we have arranged a special stakeholder meeting with the management and implementation group for One Cornwall to be held on Tuesday 25th November in New County Hall, Truro, from 6 to 9p.m. This will be your chance to hear the latest developments, question and
discuss issues that concern you with councillors and senior officials in the One Cornwall team, as well as environmental and renewable energy specialists.
Attendance is free, by invitation only, to members of bone fide Transition groups, environmental and community groups with an interest in the environment, climate change, community resilience, transport and health.
If you would like to attend, please contact
or 01840 230127. Numbers are limited, with a closing date of 14th November. (The above contact is for the whole of Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.)
[Anyone unable to attend, but who may wish to be kept informed may make such request to the above e-mail address.]
