The Nightingale Centre, Grest Hucklow
Organised by Peak District National Park Authority
Could you plant a bee and insect-friendly garden? Harness power from nature? Reduce your use of plastics? There are so many ways to live a greener lifestyle – and people living in and around the Peak District National Park can learn more at this special event, being held as part of the national Year of Green Action initiative. It will bring together community groups who are already making a difference and those looking for inspiration.
Speakers include:

Neil Cutts from Surfers Against Sewage, speaking about creating a Plastic Free Community network through Plastic Free Anglesey, to free where they live from single-use plastic and introducing their new initiative, Plastic Free Schools.

Mike Joseph, who masterminded hydroelectric-powered Christmas lights in Bradwell.

Attendees will be invited to make a pledge to do something positive for their environment as part of the Year of Green Action. The park authority is also offering community small grants to help people get their projects up and running.
