About Us

We are a local, community-led climate action group, focusing on engaging residents and increasing awareness of climate change. We initiate and encourage practical actions within our community to reduce carbon emissions. As a network we aim to work with any and all existing groups to achieve our aims. We are supported in our work by Transition Stroud.

The goal of the Wotton Area Climate Action Network is to work towards making our local area carbon neutral by 2030, in support of Stroud District Council's own Carbon Neutral 2030 Vision.

Monthly public meetings

At present our monthly meetings are postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Ordinarily, we welcome anyone to join our meetings on the evening of the fourth Thursday of each month at ‘Under The Edge Arts’ venue; The Chipping Hall in Wotton-under-Edge.

We often have guest speakers covering a range of climate-related topics and we encourage question and answer sessions and group idea generation. 

Together, the practical actions we take away from our public meetings will help us reduce carbon emissions in Wotton-under-Edge and the surrounding villages.

Regular public events

In addition to our monthly public meeting, we also hold regular, free-to-attend events. From tree planting and plastic-free picnics, to a carbon footprint popup shop and eBike demo day, we try to hold events that appeal to as wide an audience as possible. 


Again, our events aim to help individuals understand the changes they can make to reduce their carbon footprint at home or work.
