Ivybridge Futures Fair is a collaboration between Ivybridge Town Council, PL:21 Transition Town Initiative and South Dartmoor Community Energy.
Most people are aware that something big is happening, the science is overwhelmingly telling us we must act now to reduce our carbon emissions. But what does that mean? Is it really that urgent? How do we figure out what to do when there is so much conflicting advice?
All around the UK, communities are coming together to make a difference. Here in Ivybridge a new network is forming to take forward a Climate Emergency Action Plan for the town so we can play our part in reaching zero carbon and preventing catastrophic climate change.
We know the people of Ivybridge care, and we want to celebrate that, so we’re asking all local organisations and businesses to get involved.
On the 8th Feb we’re taking over the Watermark, to bring the most up to date info on the science of climate change and the latest thinking and advice on the top actions to reduce your carbon footprint, demonstrating how we can all benefit from working towards a zero carbon future.

Come if you know nothing about climate change
Come if you’re an expert
Come if you don’t think you can do anything
Come if you want to do something but don’t know what
Come if you’re old
Come if you’re young
