Othona Bradwell Green Weekend
The Essex Green Weekend is a new and exciting festival to engage communities, faith groups and anyone interested in climate change action. The weekend is an opportunity to gain a better understanding of how to take climate action, celebrate action taken, and connect with likeminded people.
There will be talks, workshops and activities on subjects including carbon neutral energy and heating, introducing wildlife habitats and improving biodiversity; sustainable food including growing your own and reducing food waste including using excess supermarket food; and reducing consumption, reusing waste and encouraging recycling. There will also be live music from The Famous Potatoes and The Fishermans Chapel Gospel Choir, food and a beer tent.
The weekend event is being run by Othona Bradwell in partnership with fellow environmental charities that are also taking steps to improve climate action and awareness. Local environment and mental health charity Trust Links, Diocese of Chelmsford, and Southend in Transition have teamed with Othona to deliver a schedule of engaging talks, activities, debates, art workshops, and entertainment, offering something for both adults and children.
Othona Bradwell added: “For nearly 80 years, Othona has sought to create an ongoing sense of community, dialogue and learning between people of different backgrounds, faiths and views. We have also become increasingly self-sufficient as an off-grid community generating our own power, growing much of our own food and looking from a faith-based perspective into ongoing ways to deliver practical sustainable living.”
