It was great to see so many Members in-person at Shenfield High School for our September 16 meeting – with as many others joining in via Zoom as well.
The technical challenges of running a hybrid meeting may have proved testing at times, but we persevered and covered lots of ground.
That included looking ahead to potential activities on the Global Day of Action during COP26 in November, which is something we will return to, to formalise plans.
And we also had some thought-provoking break-out sessions across the newly set up Action Groups to start those moving forward.
For those that are unaware, we have to date set up seven of these, on the following Action areas:
- Addressing wellbeing
- Developing community energy and providing for electric vehicles
- Engaging with public and partnering with business
- Working with schools and monitoring climate change
- Nature & environmental action and recycling
There was lots of progress, in groups run in the room and mirrored via WhatsApp and Zoom. The groups will now continue to discuss potential Actions, and bring back their updates to the next Members meeting.
If all of this sounds interesting to you, please do get in touch – and get involved!
We’ll be holding our next full meeting of Brentwood Climate Action members on Tuesday October 19.
That is set to take place at the Seymour Pavilion at Seymour Field in Ingatestone – also hybrid online via Zoom – and be a joint meeting with Ingatestone & Fryerning Parish Council Climate Emergency Working Group.
Full details and sign-up information will be published soon.
