Free eco-friendly events in Lindfield for The Great Big Green Week

Fairer World Lindfield has organised a series of free eco-friendly events this month for The Great Big Green Week.

Tuesday, 7th September 2021, 6:10 pm

This runs from Monday to Saturday (September 20-25) and features online talks about living sustainably, as well as a vegetarian cooking demonstration and a movie.

“GBGW is a UK-wide initiative of the Climate Coalition,” said Chris Lee and Peter Desmond, the main co-ordinators of Fairer World Lindfield.

“Hundreds of towns and villages across the country will be taking part to raise the profile of the climate and ecological crisis and show why it is relevant to local communities and decision makers.”

One highlight, they said, will be a Zoom talk by author Jen Gale (September 24, 7.30pm) on reducing your carbon footprint. Jen will also answer questions about her book The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide.

“We are privileged to have Tearfund, an international development agency, helping us think about the impact of climate change on those countries that are going to suffer the most,” Chris added.

This Zoom talk takes place on September 22 (7.30pm).

Outside, there will be a walk through Lindfield on September 23 (11am-12.30pm) and a visit to organic dairy farm Cockhaise Farm on September 25 (1pm).
