Events

Lighter Footprints works hard to facilitate strong action to ensure a safe climate future, through advocacy, community engagement, but particularly through arranging large events and offering a range of exciting speakers on clean energy, sustainability and climate action at our monthly meetings.

Forums

We run large public events on specific issues, often in association with elections offering interesting speakers,  challenging topics and impacting on local opinion.

Community Actions

We take opportunities to join with others involved in community outreach, as well build a local presence at festivals, including SLF.

Monthly Meetings

We meet 7pm last Wednesday of the month at the Guide Hall in Faversham Rd, Canterbury. You are warmly invited to come and hear our speakers and learn what we do.

Clean Energy and Economy – 25th September, Hawthorn Arts Centre

25th September, 2019

Come to this high profile event looking at the benefits and impacts of the clean energy transition on the economy.

Right now GDP is becoming successfully decoupled from fossil fuels, new build renewables and storage are decelerating rapidly in cost, to the point that regionalising energy infrastructure could point the way to energy driven economic growth and a massive increase in local jobs.

Our high profile expert panel will consider the economic potential of the clean energy transition and strong climate action in depth.
