As a Diocese we are currently seeking to become an Eco Diocese, alongside encouraging our Parish Churches and Fresh Expressions to become Eco Churches. We are also seeking to reflect the commitment made by the Church of England General Synod towards achieving Carbon net zero status by 2030. Travel and transport account for over 20% of our carbon emissions in the UK.
What can we do as individuals and as church communities to help reduce the carbon impact of our travel? Join in this workshop to find out more! This workshop will be provide a range of practical ideas on what we can do to travel more sustainably including walking, cycling, public transport and use of cars (including electric vehicles).

This is the second sustainable travel workshop that has taken place. Here is some feedback from participants of the first workshop:
“I signed up for this as I knew nothing much about the subject. Go Travel Solutions answered every question that came up really well (they have vast knowledge of the subject), gave a great presentation and links to useful websites and by the end I had learnt a huge amount. How he crammed it all in I don’t know, but every sort of travel was covered.”
Stephanie Snart

“It was helpful and informative, helping me to consider the journeys I make and how I might travel differently. They provided masses of information about options and where to find out more. The workshop is good for individuals as well as churches planning.”
