Webinars on getting to net zero carbon

The Church of England Environment Programme has organised a series of webinars over this winter and spring 2021, exploring topics that contribute to the Church’s target of having ‘Net Zero’ carbon emissions by 2030.  These webinars may help sow seeds in parishes about what you can do to contribute over the next decade.

The series features: 

  • Webinars on getting started: forming your team, action planning, and measuring net zero - These webinars give an overview of where a diocese can start on it's net zero journey.  They are aimed at diocesan staff and volunteers, but there will be much of interest to other audiences too.  
  • Webinars on moving your buildings towards net zero - These webinars focus in on bricks and mortar issues; what we can do to reduce our use of energy, what makes the most difference, and what is practical?
  • Webinars on low carbon solutions – heating, lighting, solar and more - These are “technical webinars for non-technical people”, explaining how each technology can help your church move towards the goal of net zero carbon, and the real practicalities of taking action. The speaker delivering each webinar has been chosen after a tendering exercise, based on their expertise in the field and practical knowledge.

The webinars are offered across a number of dates to allow for greatest flexibility.  It may be worthwhile joining forces within your parish/benefice as to who attends and then share feedback.

Details, as well as plans for future webinars and useful webinar programmes from other organisations can be found on this page.
