We will have stalls offering help and advice between 11am and 4pm. And during the evening starting at 6.30pm we will have a panel of speakers available to answer your questions on agriculture, green energy, how to save money in the home and a look at what our local authorities are trying to do to help.

Our exhibitors cover everything from wildlife to e-bikes. They include Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, Greening Tetbury and the Cotswold Energy Group an exhibition of art on a climate theme from pupils at Sir William Romneys.

Cotswold District Council

CDC is committed to making its activities net-zero carbon as soon as possible, aiming for an 100% reduction compared to 1990 by 2045. As well as setting up a Climate Change Panel, involving councillors, residents, young citizens, climate science and solutions experts, businesses and others relevant parties, CDC also puts ecological issues at the heart of its climate change actions.

Cotswold Energy Group

Stonehouse-based Cotswold Energy Group was started by three friends who wanted to do things differently. Now employing 35-plus people in engineering, management and support roles, the company has become a leading renewable heating installer, with happy customers throughout England and Wales.

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust

Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust has a simple mission — to value nature. Its ambition is to preserve, recreate and reconnect Gloucestershire’s wild places. The Trust wants everyone in Gloucestershire to value, enjoy and share wildlife in the county and believe strongly that nature matters, not only in its own right, but for the huge benefits it brings to the people of Gloucestershire.

Greening Tetbury

Greening Tetbury is a community based group of people taking action in response to the climate crisis. The group first met in August 2019 and is currently looking at what we can do in the areas of energy use, using more food from the local area, sustainable journeys, minimising our plastic use and engaging with local people and like-minded organisations.

Royal Agricultural University

RAU at Cirencester has been at the forefront of agricultural education and a key contributor to the land-based sector for 175 years. Among its projects is Wild Campus Cirencester, which is developing wildlife habitats across Cirencester’s education quarter to connect wildlife populations, benefit protected species and invest in community, environment, wellbeing and prosperity.
