Connect, share and learn skills and knowledge with others on a journey to Net Zero.

Meet the community

Join over 250 community members in our MeetUp (what's that?) community. We meet and discuss ways to become more environmentally sustainable and take climate action. Learn from a range of speakers, hear from each other and connect.

What's MeetUp?

We use MeetUp to set-up our events so we can enjoy all the community benefits that they provide: message boards, see who's attending and personalised notifications.

Who can join?

Anyone who is in a community and charity organisation based in North East England and Cumbria wanting to engage, inspire and support others in the VCSE sector to take climate action, support nature and support our people and communities through the transition to a green economy.

How do I join?

You just need to click 'Join this group' and you'll be asked to fill in a few questions so we can make sure you're the right person to attend our events. All events will then be available for you attend with links to their locations provided upon approval.
