You are invited to our free Dacorum CAN annual conference and networking event on Thursday 3 November!
The free event is intended for local Dacorum residents to network with like-minded individuals and organisations to help them 'think global and act local'.
There will be a range of speakers and stall-holders and some free goodies too. A light buffet and drinks will also be provided.
During the event you can discover what actions are taking place locally to tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergency, how you can get involved, and also learn more about what you can do to improve your own carbon footprint and live more sustainably.
18:00 - 18:45 - Arrival and networking
18:45 - 19:30 - Welcome. First speakers session. Q&A.

The speakers will also be live-streamed for anyone who is unable to attend. You will need to register for either in-person or virtual tickets - both are free.
Do you have an eco-project that needs some financial support?
Groups can obtain a maximum grant of £3,000.
Our Green Community Grants scheme is specifically designed to support projects in our community which benefit the environment, as well as Dacorum's residents.
The purpose is to encourage and enable local groups to 'think global and act local' whilst tackling environmental challenges.
This ties in with the objectives of the newly launched Dacorum Climate Action Network (which we encourage both individuals and groups to join).
Any voluntary and community groups are invited to apply, including school groups and parish and town councils.
Projects must demonstrate that they will actively help towards the mitigation of the climate and ecological emergency locally within Dacorum.
This could be with projects that reduce carbon emissions, increase active travel, improve biodiversity, increase sustainability or raise environmental awareness locally.
The environmental projects must also engage with or benefit the local community. The projects with the greatest impacts will be awarded the funding.
To find out more details including how to apply, visit the Grants page.
The Green Community Grant scheme is open for applications until 20 November 2022.
Successful projects will be notified in December, with grants being allocated by January.
Please note that litter-picking and fly-tipping projects will not be deemed suitable for the grants.
Please share this information with any other local community groups who may be interested.
