COP with the Climate Hub at Depot

1-12 November, Depot Studio
Come along to Depot Cinema this November for a fortnight of climate and environmental-related exhibitions, talks and workshops hosted by affiliate groups of Lewes Climate Hub.

While global leaders meet at the critical UN Climate Summit in Glasgow, our affiliate groups will supporting Depot’s COP26 season by exploring themes that are critical to tackling climate change at an international, community and personal level. From sustainable food to renewable energy, climate justice to greener travel, join the Hub at Depot to explore a wealth of ideas to see what a low-carbon world should really look like.

On Sunday 7 November, there’ll be a Family Activities Day, with activities for all the family to explore around looking after our planet. To round things off on Friday 12 November, a People’s Climate Assembly will let you have your say on sustainable housing and transport for Lewes District in a facilitated discussion, with all ideas fed back to Lewes District Council.
