Guildford Environmental Forum
The Forum organises regular meetings which are open to all. Future meetings are shown below. The list should be updated at least every three months. Other meetings of interest are sometimes included.

Monday 15 January Biodiversity Group. A talk on “Swifts” Edward Mayer of Swift Conservation. Swifts have suffered serious declines over the past 20 or more years. There's no doubt they're in trouble, but what are the reasons and what can we do to help them recover? Guildford is setting up a joint project with Woking (in the wake of our successful joint Peregrine Falcon project) to work on this. Many other communities are doing the same. It needs councils, residents and wildlife groups to work together. Edward Mayer tells us all we need to know. 1900. Council Chamber, GBC Millmead Offices.

Monday 22 January Henrietta Stock is a Chartered Energy Engineer and one of many volunteer Climate Reality Leaders trained by former US Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore to educate the public about climate change as part of the Climate Reality Project. Her talk will be based around the material presented in Al Gore's latest film "Inconvenient Sequel – Truth to Power", which poses the questions 'Must we change? Can we change? Will we change?' 1900. Room 1, Chantries, GBC Millmead Offices.

Tuesday 13 February Community Projects. The film “A Life Story”, featuring the late Patrick Whitefield of permaculture fame, Satish Kumar of Resurgence, Simon Fairlie, editor of The Land who started the new enthusiasm for scything in the UK, Polly Higgins, ecocide lawyer, and Peter Owen Jones, clergyman and presenter. We follow Pete and Lilly on a journey as they confront the stark reality of our times and discover a hidden culture of connection and belonging.
