About this website
This website presents locally tailored information and toolsets to help us all in meeting the challenge of reducing our carbon emissions to achieve the Net Zero climate emergency target. It is a long term programme - the deadline is 2050 - but the sooner we get there, the better.
The website will grow and change through time. Local projects will be launched that we hope you will take part in. We hope that you will share your stories of how you are:
reducing carbon emissions in your household or your lifestyle
how you are offsetting emissions with tree or hedgerow planting
how you are increasing biodiversity in your garden, your field, your farm, your woodland or in a community project
using innovative techniques in your gardening or crop growing
reducing pollution - of any kind
...and much more
The website zones bring you:
Churt Environment Working Group, our Churt Environmental Charter.
Information, advice and tips on how to reduce emissions in our homes and lifestyle, including energy saving, heating, car transport and air travel.
Air quality, light and waterway pollution plus more to come on plastics pesticides and litter.
This section is sure to grow quickly. Currently it covers trees and hedgerows, guides for local species spotters and some videos and activity guides for families with children. There is a lot more to come soon in this topic zone.
A useful carbon footprint calculator so that you can check out your carbon emission startpoint and then track it regularly on your Net Zero journey. Information on grants to help and links to our partners. There's a public transport toolset coming soon.
We start with a revised and digitised version of five of the "Ten Walks in and around Churt" which were originally published by Michael Stenning in 1994. The other five will be added very soon and no doubt new walks will be added.
News on Net Zero projects and local Net Zero success stories.
This website is dedicated to all children with a connection to Churt and especially to those born in February 2021, the month when the website was launched. Let the action that we take now make a difference to the carbon neutrality of their world in 2050 – and may the countryside around Churt be as beautiful then, as it is today.
