North Norfolk District Council is to host an environment forum, to give people a chance to work together on key green issues.  Members of the public are invited to the event on Thursday 15 August at the Atrium in North Walsham from 2pm – 8pm.

The District Council is committed to developing and delivering an Environmental Charter with the aim of becoming a leader in meeting high environmental and energy standard.  It’s inviting interested groups and individuals to consider how best to work together to benefit and protect North Norfolk for the future.

Members of the public can drop in between 2pm – 5pm when Council Members and staff will be on hand to talk about what the Council is looking to do to tackle local and national environmental concerns and what steps it has already taken to address climate change.  A second session will be held from 6pm-8pm and will feature key speakers and a workshop.  Members of the public are advised to email if they wish to attend the evening event.  Refreshments will be provided.

Cllr. Nigel Lloyd, North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet Portfolio for the Environment will host the event.  He explained: “I would encourage anyone who cares about the future of our planet to come along to North Norfolk District Council’s first Environment Forum.  The afternoon session is a fantastic opportunity for school children to get involved, and find out ways of helping to protect the environment for their future.

“The Environment Forum will enable us to us to understand what concerns local people have regarding Climate Change and is a great opportunity to tackle them together to make a positive difference.”
