A Climathon is an event where communities can discuss, debate, and develop locally relevant net zero solutions.
And we are joining the University of Gloucester and others in Bude to discuss how farming and land use can help achieve net zero.

This event will bring together farmers, residents, local NGOs, and other key stakeholders, to develop projects focused on farming and land use’s contribution to net zero.

It begins on Tuesday 24 May with a 1.5 hour lunchtime webinar where we’ll begin to develop project ideas together, and have time for questions. On Wednesday 25 May, the in-person Climathon will take place all day at The Falcon Hotel in central Bude.

The goal is that by the end of the day, participants will have developed a set of concrete solutions for farming and net zero in the Bude area.

There’s a sister event in the Eden Valley, Cumbria and on Wednesday 15 June an exchange webinar for the two Climathon communities is planned to share ideas and experiences.

Join us for Bude’s first ever Climathon.
