Get involved in the B&NES Climate and Biodiversity Festival

B&NES are planning the first Climate and Biodiversity Festival in September (13-26) to showcase individuals, organisations and businesses that are taking action to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies.

The festival is being co-ordinated by Bath & North East Somerset Council and will enable the area to highlight the national debate ahead of two significant international environmental events: the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15) in China in October and the UN (COP26) Conference in Glasgow in November.

The council is inviting residents, community groups, organisations and businesses to shape the two-week programme of events by running their own activities on the theme of carbon emissions and nature — for example topics could include food, travel, waste, renewable energy, biodiversity, buildings and finance.

How can you get involved?

You could organise or create an activity of any kind: music, poetry, film, theatre and art or maybe a discussion or a debate.

If you are interested and would like to take part, please register on the festival website and they will be in touch.

Please share this information with your colleagues, friends and community groups. We’ve got a shared responsibility to tackle the challenges of the environmental crisis and so the event organisers would like as much local involvement as possible to help highlight these important issues.
