In Marlborough we're getting urgent action postcards signed for the Prime Minister to deliver in the run-up to the Paris Climate Summit in December.

You can also collect them from, & return to, Judy’s @ The Flat, Patten Alley (by St Mary’s Church) - 514093

- as well as join us for for a stint on the High Street on Wednesday mornings (weather permitting) from 11.30.

This recent quote from the former EU Climate Commissioner, Connie Hedegaard, inspires action!

It is the European public who makes it almost untenable for a leader to ignore climate change. Environmental organisations have done a fine job keeping the issue on the agenda.



Our history: Marlborough Climate Pledge

In 2005, a group of us decided we needed to bring people together, invite them to make specific pledges to reduce energy with aim to reduce carbon emissions (with suggestions from our Pledge Booklet) – and, within a year, personally follow them up, by email or telephone, so that each person’s actions would be recognized, acknowledged, and recorded,  for the encouragement of all.

In 2006, we launched Marlborough Climate Pledge, with former Environment Minister Michael Meacher, MP, addressing a packed Town Hall on this subject, inspiring a wave of action which resulted in a savings of 1.2 tonnes of CO2 per pledger (calculated with the help of EST, the Energy Savings Trust) – 5% of average household emissions.

We continued to gather and record pledges for several years, supported by a varied programme of events and projects to educate each other and facilitate our efforts, working with groups and organizations as well as individuals: films, talks, workshops, school events, advocacy & campaigning, establishing a Community Allotment, regular Green Drinks.
