Climate change, environmental issues, plastic pollution, shrinking biodiversity – it’s easy to be overwhelmed, even to the extent where it’s difficult to do anything. But we can all take ‘One Small Step’ and maybe all those small steps collectively might become a giant leap for humankind! In the week leading up to COP26, the United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow, we are running a number of events that might help us take those small steps whilst enjoying being community and enjoy engaging with the community.
More details about all these events, including links to book for the ticketed events, at christchurchb29.org/step.
