Event postponed

Following the health and safety advice issued by the government throughout this week, we are sadly having to make the decision to postpone the Climate Day of Action and the stakeholder meeting which were due to take place next month. We’ll be working hard behind the scenes to make sure we can find a suitable alternative date, but for the time being, the safety and wellbeing of the town has to come first. We really appreciate everyone’s understanding

What is Andover's Climate day of action?

Andover's Climate Day of Action was developed by some of our key partners, including Andover Trees United, Andover Plastic Free and Transition Town Andover.

We thought this would be a great way to showcase what local people and organisations already do to help the environment but also to encourage individuals, community groups, businsesses and schools to pledge to make a change, big or small, to tackle the escalating climate emergency.

And so Andover's Climate Day of Action was born!

What could you do on the day?

It would be amazing if you could all get involved on 24 April and this online pack includes details of how you can do just that.

People across Andover will be marking the Climate Day of Action by taking part in activities, sharing their climate change hints and tips online and making a commitment to do things differently.

We welcome any ambitious activities but here are a few easy ideas of what you could do to make a difference...

  • Walk or cycle instead of driving

  • Use a reusable cup for your morning coffee

  • Try out a meat free meal

  • Visit the High Street where you will be able to find out what other people are already doing

Andover's Climate Day of Action is going to be an exciting event with activities taking place across Andover!

Share what you are doing on the day!

We would like to share the activities taking place on the day and celebrate all of the brilliant things you are already doing to help the environment. Climate change is something that affects everyone, so it is great to share what you are already doing to inspire and encourage each other.

Whatever activity you take part in or change you choose to make on 24 April, make sure to take pictures and share your ideas using #andoverclimateaction or tag Andover Vision in your Facebook posts. If you would like to send them to us directly then simply pop them in an email to andovervision@testvalley.gov.uk

We would also like to film some of the activities on the day so please get in touch by emailing the address above, as it would be brilliant if we could come along to capture and share what you are doing.
