Our Zoom event of 22 April 2021,   ‘Woodlands for All: Is it time for Hemel Hempstead to branch out’  can now be viewed online: 

Speakers

Attendees

  • Hemel Hempstead MP Sir Mike Penning,
  • Representatives of the Hertfordshire County,  Dacorum Borough Councils
  • 40+ concerned local residents.

Hosted by Emma Stevens,  Hope for the Future 

We have committed to work together in our joint enterprise.  Our next actions were agreed at a steering meeting the week after the event

  1. Organise group knowledge sharing and research around understanding the Dacorum Local Strategic Plan
  2. Work on mapping Hemel Hempstead’s existing woodland and tree cover 
  3. Decide on specifics of approach and key points to raise with Dacorum Council when our next meeting is arranged

We are grateful for the support and expertise of the team of talented and dedicated young people at the Hope for the Future charity.

This movement was inspired by Colin Cartwright , minister at the Carey Baptist eco – Church, who approached us to partner with him, following our Climate Justice seminar for local people in September 2020.

2021 marks 10 years of Quakers’ Canterbury Commitment to take action to become a low carbon, sustainable community.
