Thame COP 26

Increasing biodiversity, reducing emissions, in our town.

Thame COP 26 is our local version of the global climate summit, Glasgow COP 26.

During the first two weeks of November, the Glasgow 'Conference of the Parties' brought leaders from every country together in a united effort to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss. Thame COP invites the 'parties' of Thame: businesses, schools, faith organisations, and groups to do the same.

We are now in the 'Do it' stage of the project, with all participating organisations starting to make the changes they have committed to. Good luck everyone - and we'll see you at the COP Social in March!

Thame Barns Centre

Thame Barns Centre already recycle cooking oil into renewable alternatives.They have increased recycling bins, fitted 'Hippos' in toilets to use less water and stopped using aerosol air fresheners.They have also replaced one large fridge with two smaller ones so one can be turned off when not needed. The centre is in the process of changing all lightbulbs to LEDs. 

Would like to see a better understanding of recycling bins and what can go in them.

Commits to adding more plants in and around the centre to improve air quality and encourage insects in the garden.They hope to have two EV charging points installed by March 2022 and are exploring undertaking an energy audit.
