PROJECTS & ACTION GROUPS
Working with others, we do a lot - and we'd like to do more. Can you spare a little time to help?
A very active group working on projects from locally renewable funded energy, assistance with energy saving and insulation and great work in establishing a carbon baseline for Tring
When something is broken, all too often, we throw it away. Maybe we don’t have the skills, the time or the right tools. That's where Repair Café (supported by Dacorum Borough Council) comes in. It's a place where people can gather and fix those objects from everyday life that would otherwise end up in landfill. It's supported entirely by volunteers and we're happy to have brought this great initiative to Tring. Find out more...
We're also actively supporting the setup of a Repair Shed as a more permanent base with better facilities to help "Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle" materials that would otherwise be binned. Finally we encourage the right to repair concept to reduce the number of single or short use products and those deliberately designed to be impossible to fix when they go wrong.
We're always looking for people who'd be interested in helping. Contact Ken or Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Wish List - we're looking for help to get the following ideas off the ground...
Business Advisory Group - help local businesses on their journey to be more sustainable and to establish a recognition system.
School & Community Outreach - We already educate and encourage local groups - and want to do more.
Eco homes - a BIG ask, but we'd love to find land and collaboratively build carbon neutral, zero running energy homes.
Greening, Re-wilding and Wildlife - we're already collaborating with the likes of Wild Tring and local land owners, advising on local wildlife corridors, and there is much more to do.
Get in touch if you have any ideas and/or would like to help.
