Just back from the GREN AGM. One of the first external events I attended as an Eco-congregation co-ordinator was the meeting which launched GREN - the Greater Reading Environmental Network. It's a network of the very many groups in the Reading area with concerns about the environment, be that urban wildlife, veganism or climate change. As a yahoo group it's proved a very useful way of keeping in touch with the variety of things happening, as well as a source of local information (in my case including the greenest way to dispose of my car). But it also organises events and the next focusses on Copenhagen:
READING DEMANDS GLOBAL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Thursday 12 November 7.30 pm
RISC, 35-39 London Street, Reading, RG1 4PS
Professor Jonathan Gregory, Climate Scientist, University of Reading
Phil Thornhill, Campaign against Climate Change
Martin Salter MP, Reading West
An opportunity to learn more and to send your message to the UK government.
Other Reading Christian Ecology Link members have been part of organising this, one of whom will be chairing the evening - please come along!
