Egin Gathering 2024: Community Climate Action
Egin Gathering 2024: Community Climate Action
May 17, 2024    
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us in Pontypridd on the 17th of May for our first Egin Gathering, where you’ll have the chance to meet others who are passionate about tackling climate change and living more sustainably.  

Community groups across Wales being supported by our Egin programme will share stories from the climate projects they’ve been working on, and you’ll have the chance to join discussions or hands-on workshops on topics connected to community climate action. There’ll also be plenty of time to chat with other groups who are taking steps to tackle climate change in their communities.

Faced with a cost-of-living crisis, increasing global instability and the climate crisis, it’s more important than ever that communities come together to decide the kind of future they want to see.  

Due to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, we DTA Wales can offer this event for free for up to 100 people. Register today! 

Everyone planning to attend must register their free place so we know numbers for catering.
