Community engagement starts on Exeter's bid to be a Net Zero Carbon city
Published: 18 February 2020
Community engagement around Exeter's bid to become a Net Zero Carbon city by 2030 gets underway this week.
Arts organisation Encounters hosts a series of community drop-in events across the city during February and March.
The first event takes place at The Beacon Community Centre, in Beacon Lane, on Friday, 21 February, from 9.30am to 12noon.
The following day, the team will take part in The Big Green Event at Cathedral Green, from 9.30am to 5pm.
Then on Sunday, 23 February, a drop-in consultation session will take place at Piazza Terracina, at Exeter Quay, from 11am to 2pm.
As many people as possible are being invited to discuss the Blueprint for a Net Zero Exeter, and identify the everyday challenges and barriers that must be overcome.
Everyone living or working in Exeter is invited to explore what becoming a carbon neutral city could mean for individuals, organisations, communities and the city as a whole.
The events will be informal, creative and friendly. Encounters will bring its mobile community space called Chrysalis to all events.
The information shared at these events will provide ideas and information vital to developing the shared city roadmap to a carbon neutral Exeter, at the Net Zero Exeter Mobilisation Summit on 26 March, at Exeter City Football Club.

Friday 21 February
9.30am to 12 noon at The Beacon Community Centre
