Zero Carbon Harrogate (ZCH) is a volunteer-led, registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation, charity number 1192634.
Following a film viewing of Naomi Klein's "This Changes Everything - Capitalism vs the Climate" held at the time of the 2015 Paris Climate Change Talks, a group of us felt strongly that we must do something locally. We formed a climate action group in January 2016 and Zero Carbon Harrogate was born! We became a Charitable Unincorporated Organisation and a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in 2020.
ZCH brings together residents from different backgrounds and with different experiences to support the development of a thriving, low carbon, sustainable economy, which will improve the quality of life for all Harrogate District residents.
Together, we aim to:
EDUCATE our community on the need for urgent climate action and decarbonisation.
ENGAGE collaboratively with organisations and political decision-makers around climate action.
SUPPORT individuals, groups and organisations in taking effective climate action.
