    Are there any slides, notes etc from this day? I didn’t know about the seminar, but am very interested in this area both for my work role and as as a volunteer for ‘Sustainable Wallingford’ a community group in Oxfordshire that is very actively supporting our community to act on climate change and change their behaviour to live more sustainably. At the moment we are exploring the possibility of setting up a social enterprise to support our activities and it would be helpful to have any advice.
