Godalming Climate Forum

The Godalming Climate Forum aims to bring together local groups with an environmental interest.  The Forum hopes to share ideas, expertise, resources and publicity across groups.  This will hopefully result in practical action, focused effort, reduced duplication and climate grant applications made by groups, individually or jointly by groups working together.

We hope that combining forces will help to raise public awareness and participation in working on your aims, projects and public events, which will make each of them more successful.

Organisations participating in the Godalming Climate Forum have said that they would like to make it easier for the people of Godalming to take action to prevent climate catastrophe.  They extend an invitation to every resident and worker in Godalming to join in with their projects.  We know that there is so much talent, expertise and enthusiasm in Godalming and we all want to work together to make all of our efforts more successful.
