Everyone who has previously attended Carbon Conversations is invited to the Carbon Conversations Networking Day on Saturday 10 March.
The day will be an opportunity to meet others who have taken part in, and facilitated Carbon Conversations courses. It will be an opportunity to exchange experiences and share ideas for future action. And also to enjoy a lovely vegetarian lunch!
