About Us

We are a group of Menston residents who first got together in May 2019 out of concern for the climate emergency. Our primary aim is:

To take practical actions in our local area to raise awareness, to enhance our local environment and to strive for carbon neutrality.

We usually hold public meetings roughly every two months. During the current Covid-19 crisis, we are holding meetings via Zoom video conference. You will find dates of meetings on our future events page, and if you’d like to ask us anything please contact us. If you would like to get a sense of what’s going on in the group, take a look at the minutes of our previous meetings or look around the pages for working groups for some of the projects we are undertaking and other voluntary activities. If you’re keen to become a member, use the form here.

We coordinate our activities across all members and within the working groups using the Slack application. Any member who is not already on the Slack group for Climate Action Menston, can contact info@climateactionmenston.org.uk to be enrolled. Once on Slack, we recommend you explore different subgroups (click on Channels to view and optionally follow).

We are acutely conscious that the Environmental Climate Emergency has not gone away, despite the world’s current focus on resolving the global pandemic.
