Action on Climate and Ecological Emergencies

Building resilience into our communities and local economy in Devon is an increasing priority for people in Devon. With need for a collective response to creating a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon where people and nature thrive the team at New Prosperity Devon have been using their time and resources to rise to the challenge. Alongside developing educational and network building events some of the team volunteer their time by sitting on Devon Climate Emergency's Net Zero Task Force, using specialist knowledge and experience to produce an evidence-led Devon Carbon Plan, and take part in the award winning Devon Doughnut Collective, a multidisciplinary citizen-led co-design process to apply Doughnut Economics in the county. 

Below you can watch replays of some of the online webinars we have organised for members and officers of local councils responding to the climate and ecological emergency. We have been collaborating with Devon Communities Together, Action on Climate in Teignbridge and CAG Devon to build a toolkit and network for Parish and Town Councils working on the climate and ecological emergencies in Devon.


In collaboration with Transition Exeter and The Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter, we also offer events for general audiences.
