Public encouraged to watch live stream of Zero Carbon event

12th November 2021

The public is being invited to a free event that will discuss the outcomes of COP26 and how our county can “rise to the challenge” of reducing carbon emissions to net-zero.

‘Carbon Zero in Cumbria and the Lake District’ is hosted by Cumbria Community Foundation’s Cumbria Club as part of its Cumbria Voices campaign in partnership with Armstrong Watson.

The live stream event begins at 6pm on Tuesday 16th November and although in-person tickets are sold out, the public is still being encouraged to join the live stream.

Viewers and the audience at Rheged in Penrith will hear presentations from author Mike Berners-Lee, Chief Executive of the Lake District National Park Richard Leafe, Simon Carr of University of Cumbria and Karen Mitchell of Cumbria Action for Sustainability.

The distinguished panellists will discuss the outcomes of COP26 and how as a county, we can all rise to the challenge of climate change.

Andy Beeforth, CEO of Cumbria Community Foundation, said: “We’re committed to supporting eco-friendly Cumbrian projects for the long term and through our grant making, we’re keen to work with local people and businesses who want to make a difference in reducing the carbon footprint in the county.”

The Cumbria Club is hosting the event with Cumbria Community Foundation, Armstrong Watson, Rheged and the University of Cumbria.
