Welcome to Sustainable Devizes

Sustainable Devizes is a community group seeking ways to strengthen the local economy, reduce our environmental impact, and build resilience for a future beyond cheap energy and a changing climate. We are part of the Transition Network “A movement of communities coming together to re-imagine and rebuild our world”.

For more details of our aims and activities see the About page.

Theme of the month - Carbon Footprints

The theme for this month is how carbon footprints can be used as a tool to help each of us do our bit in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and hence the severity of future global heating.

Members of Sustainable Devizes gave a presentation on this topic as part of the Creationtide season of events at St. John's Church Devizes. The slides from that presentation are available here.

Here is a great tool to assess your current carbon footprint and to investigate changes that you coud make to reduce it: https://www.resurgence.org/resources/carbon-calculator.html
