Eco-friendly events at your local climate hub to get involved in this month!
Author: Eli Haidari
Kingston Hive officially opened its temporary hub next to the cycle parking at Kingston Station on Wood Street in November which has allowed it to start offering a range of activities and workshops to help educate and empower communities to tackle climate change. The Hive aims to give residents and visitors the skills and support they need to cut carbon emissions and energy costs, look after the natural environment and live a more sustainable lifestyle. Workshops and events hosted so far include sustainable eating classes, repair workshops, film nights, educational sessions on subjects such as renewable energy and listening circles. February will also see a Climate Fresk workshop take place for those at a loss with how they can help tackle the current climate emergency. The fun and interactive workshop will start with cards and will run through the science and a system view of climate change, showing how everyone can take important actions. The following week (18th January) will see Daniela Voit present The Work That Reconnects, based on the process derived by Joanna Macy to help find active help. On Wednesday, January 25th, coaching and business psychologist Samia Shehadeh will host a talk on taking effective action through the use of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
