Save our Shropshire CIO is celebrating receiving nearly £ 10,000 in funding to support its work in fighting the Climate Emergency through education. It is awarded as part of the Together for Our Planet project. SOS CIO will use the grant funding to support our work in developing and delivering that education, that is crucial to the people of Shropshire.
Allan Wilson, founder and chair of SOS CIO says “We are incredibly excited to receive this award, which will accelerate enormously our efforts in helping people take positive practical action on the climate emergency. “Together for Our Planet” – the Lottery fund project – brilliantly describes the only way we will tackle climate change. Human beings have the capacity to destroy our planet. Human beings must take action to save it. We must stop it from becoming another barren hot rock circling the sun.”
We will be running workshops for Householders to understand the climate emergency, and pledge action. We will also be running a brand-new workshop for Parish and Town councils to help them organise to combat climate emergency and engage the community. All learners take pledges to act to reduce carbon footprints individually and as a part of a group.
