Be informed, get inspired

When it comes to climate change there is a room for everyone to contribute. Learn about steps you can take, projects and campaigns to get involved in. Find like-minded people to start a project of your own.

You can also find practical advice, from switching to renewable energy to food-growing to making your home more energy efficient – Lewes Climate Hub can signpost you to advice, support, talks and workshops to help you take action in your own household, business or organisation.

We’re here for everyone

Whether you’re an individual, a family, a local business or an interest group, we are strongly committed to supporting those who haven’t typically been included in conversations on the climate and environment.

Your voice matters – so drop in, email us and share your thoughts and ideas on how we tackle this emergency together and create a community that can withstand the impacts of climate change.

If you are part of a local community group that would like to be an affiliate of Lewes Climate Hub, contact us at

What does climate change mean for Lewes?

Rising temperatures, loss of species and more extreme weather patterns have serious implication for us here in the south east of England. In Lewes, we are thoroughly aware of the effects of flooding, having lived through the local floods of 2000. 

The wetlands to the south of Lewes used to be a sea inlet, and could be again as climate change leads to rising sea levels. Food production and water supplies may be threatened by changing weather and the loss of natural pollinators. The residential and other buildings in our area, many built centuries ago, are unsuited to higher temperatures. But we cannot simply wait for governments to take action: to be resilient against climate change and help reduce its worst effects, we all have to work together as a community.

What about our local councils?

One of our key aims is to promote and support (and, where necessary, challenge) the sustainability goals of our town, district and county councils. Wherever possible we aim to work closely with our councillors to help our community take real and effective action on climate change. For example, we hope to be instrumental in helping Lewes District reach its goal of generating “net zero” carbon emissions by 2030.
