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.


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.
