I've been asked to circulate the following and hope that you will find it useful and interesting.

Two exciting events, organised by Gedling Climate Change Group (GCCG), will be showing how to take simple, local, action to reduce plastic use and why it is so important.
The first event takes place at Morrisons supermarket in Netherfield where shoppers can get simple tips to cut unnecessary packaging. Working with the supermarket, members of GCCG will share ideas on reducing waste in their shopping trollies and promoting local recycling options. The event will run from 10.30am until 1pm in Morrisons, Victoria Retail Park, Netherfield.
The month of events also include a community screening of climate action film ‘Tomorrow’ followed by a special panel of experts at The Bonington in Arnold on Saturday 21 September 2019 at 2pm.The movie tickets cost £2.50 and include the panel session after the screening.
The expert environmental panel includes:

The film follows Cyril Dion, a French activist, author and journalist, who becomes aware of the potential impact on humankind unless we make dramatic changes. He embarks on a road trip around the world in search of in the fields of food, energy, transport, economics and education, with amazing, inspiring results.
