Massive congratulations to the team at Zero Carbon Guildford on winning a national award from the Climate Coalition AND being publicly congratulated for their work by the Prime Minister in Parliament!! What an incredible achievement.
ZERO Carbon Guildford is an entirely volunteer-run operation. It relies on the time and commitment of its wonderful team who are passionate about raising climate awareness and action in their community.
Two of our Climate Clarity team, Naomi and Rupert, are lucky enough to have ZERO as their local Climate Emergency Centre. They’re very proud of the tireless work the team at ZERO have done over the last 2 years to build this exemplary project.
We were so happy to run our first Climate Fresk there last month and are looking forward to more collaboration! The next 2 Climate Fresk workshops there will be 14th March & 1st April – book your place via Zero’s events page.
ZERO expressed deep gratitude to all those who helped make this volunteer-run project happen:
‘We’ve had so many people from the local community contribute to getting us here – from everyone who believed in the vision enough to support our crowdfunder when ZERO didn’t even exist, to the dozens of people who helped us patch holes, paint walls and build equipment and displays – and that was before we even opened the doors.
Since then we’ve had countless people contribute in the day to day running of the space and all our projects. From everyone who serves customers, to the people who collect community fridge deliveries, market and promote what we’re up to, the dozens of water testers up and down the Wey, our new crew of Energy Champions delivering home energy surveys, all the people who speak at and organise Sustainable Business Network events, create and design displays, manage volunteers and make them feel welcome, sort baby clothes, monitor the impact of our projects, keep the bugs from eating our delicious vertical farming produce, staff stalls at external events, sort recycling, deal with building maintenance, iron out never ending technology issues, and countless other things that so many of you have selflessly dedicated time to over the past 2 years or so!’
Congratulations again, ZERO, and we hope your team is enjoying some well-deserved celebrations!
