Our aim is to become carbon literate and to support Tideswell and District in becoming a low carbon community.
Things we've been doing...
TDEG are delighted to have started working with Litton Primary School and Bishop Pursglove School in Tideswell. At Litton and Tideswell we have offered Together for our Planet project and now at Litton are supporting an Eco-council. Find out more here.
We have established the Climate Pathfinders Youth Forum. This is a platform for young people with a passion for the environment, who care for the future of the climate. The group will drive action for positive environmental change. The CPYF is open to all young people aged 11 years and over, living within the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales. Find out more here.
We have also developed a list of information sources about renewable energy and local suppliers. This is available here. Or you can also check out the new Government approved TrustMark list of installers (more information here).
Group members support each other with individual actions, such as sharing ideas on ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
