How will Climate Change impact Maldon?

Created: Friday, 15 March 2019

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre hosted a presentation and conversation ‘Understanding climate impacts in our local community’ on Thursday 28 February. The night was attended by approximately 40 people.

 We heard from presenters Laurel Freeland and Michael Weadon - trained Climate Reality Leaders through Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project – who volunteer to educate communities about the realities of climate change and promote local and global solutions.

 This was an opportunity to join the conversation about what the community value most about the local district, to share our climate concerns and discuss the type of action we need to see.
