Pembroke Can Make A Difference

Set against the backdrop of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December, key environment campaigners in Wales are meeting in Pembroke for the first time.

The event, to be held in Foundry House on Pembroke Commons on Thursday 15th October, is organised by Pembroke 21C Community Association’s Sustainable Energy Group to showcase their project designed to encourage behavioural change in Pembroke.

Pembroke Can Make a Difference! encourages individuals, households, schools and businesses to begin taking small steps to reduce their impact on the environment and to build a cohesive community approach so that Pembroke really can make a difference and plan for a sustainable future.

Starting at 5pm the evening will bring together national and local organisations who are working in the field of climate change. There will be a showing of the film Ecoworriers: An end of the road movie by Rhodri Thomas of Sustain Wales, who will later join a panel of experts to examine whether this small community project can affect the big picture.

The panel, to be chaired by Angela Burns AM, Shadow Minister for Environment and Planning, with Peter Davies of the Sustainable Development Commission for Wales, Gordon James from Friends of the Earth, and Andy Middleton of TYF Group, will examine the question Can Pembroke Make A Difference?

The event is free and refreshments will be served.
