A resource by Clive Boulter. It bridges the gap between researchers and the rest of us who have some knowledge. Speeding up the cascade of information and correcting concepts, long since updated, but still being incorrectly promoted.

We want to support local groups to help meet COP26 Goals. During the Conference, The Lake District Foundation will support up to 20 projects with a grant of up to £500 to help tackle the climate crisis we are facing. Applications open 9am 31st Oct 2021
