    About

    The Wells Environment Network is a forum for people and organisations who support conservation and decarbonisation in the City of Wells and its environs.

    The Wells Environment Network is an independent forum and a broad network open to all people and organisations who have an interest in improving the environment in Wells.

    Aims:

    • To promote and champion environmentalism in Wells and find consensus on environmental issues, and provide a platform for people to express and debate views on how to achieve better environmental outcomes for the city.
    • To highlight work underway in the local area
    • To catalyse environmental action within Wells and mobilise people to achieve positive environmental change.
    • To establish a supportive network and facilitate the development of new networks and projects.
    • To identify areas where work is being duplicated and explore ways in which knowledge/ resources can be pooled for greater impact
    • To connect environmental work to our community and suggest opportunities for volunteering and engagement

     

    There will be three meetings a year to allow members to present their projects, answer questions, and discuss further opportunities.
