Sustainability: Get Involved

Every contribution to climate and environmental change makes a difference. Here are a number of ways in which you can learn more about and get involved with our climate and sustainability activities at East Herts Council, and in the wider local community.

If you have any ideas or feedback on how you would like to see this page develop, please feel free to get in touch.

Our Environment and Climate Forum is a bi-monthly meeting, currently held on Zoom, which brings together local residents, groups, businesses, partners and Council representatives. 

A range of subjects are covered throughout the year alongside progress updates on the Council's carbon reduction Action Plan. 

Topics covered to date include sustainable goods and procurement, green economy, planning, decarbonising transport, biodiversity and natural land use, water sustainability, energy efficiency and behaviour change. Copies of minutes and presentations are available on request.

Moving forward, the Forum will take the form of a citizen’s assembly every quarter. Further details, including meeting dates for 2022 will be published soon.

For general enquiries about the Forum, carbon reduction and/or the Council's Environmental Sustainability Action Plan please email or
