Meeting ID: 884 3386 2796
Organised by Community Climate Action Network/Marches Energy Agency

This will be:

  • A follow up on our meeting last month
  • An informal opportunity to ‘meet’ with people from other climate change-focused community groups in the Nottingham/Nottinghamshire/Derby/Derbyshire area.
  • A chance to hear about what other community groups are doing
  • An opportunity to talk about what support you might want from the Community Climate Action Network in the next few months (while life is very different to normal) and in the future. This could be more Zoom meetings, more content on our website or something else.

We are running regular monthly Zoom meetings to give community groups a chance to informally meet and share ideas. Our next Zoom meeting will be on Wednesday 17th June from 7pm till 8pm. As usual, this will also be an opportunity to let us know what support you would like from us.  

Power Up Online: Empower yourself with skills to win campaigns through planning

Sat, 20/06/2020


Weekly, Begins Friday 1st May  (repeated Saturday 2nd May) 
Organised by Friends of the Earth

This free online training programme, led by experienced Planner Naomi Luhde-Thompson, aims to explain how you can use the planning system to help protect your local environment and to campaign for green development. It will outline your rights under the planning system, and how you can successfully influence planning decisions to win your campaign.

The programme will consist of 6 weekly modules. Each module will consist of:

  • An online 90 minute Zoom call including presentations, films and an opportunity to ask questions.
  • A follow-on online discussion forum on Slack 
  • For some modules, a dedicated, region specific Zoom online surgery to discuss regional campaigns and local plans.

These will run:

  • Every Friday evening, 6pm – 7:30pm  
  • Repeated every Saturday mornings, 10am - 11:30am 

You need to attend 1 session each week, either Friday evening or Saturday morning. You are able to change your choice during the course.

If they are over-subscribed, they will prioritise individuals and groups that are currently under-represented and disadvantaged in the planning process.
