Community Action on Climate Change
Talk in English by Grant Peisley
Friday, 21st May 2021, 7:00 PM
People throughout Wales and beyond have been coming together in their communities to cooperate on developing renewable energy projects over the past decade and more.  With some 175 community energy projects in Wales, and in the absence of any meaningful action at government levels, community enterprises are beginning to look at how else they can contribute to tackling climate change.

This talk by Grant Peisley will explain more about community energy, look at what groups in Wales have achieved so far and look at how these same groups are now turning their attention to climate change, from the ground up.

Grant is a Director of Community Energy Wales and founder of Datblygiadau Egni Gwledig (DEG), YnNi Teg, YnNi Newydd, YnNi Llŷn and YnNi Lleu. DEG has worked with over 60 communities in northwest Wales on energy projects and Grant will be sharing their stories and inspiring us all to take action.

Talk in Welsh by Dr D Ben Rees
Friday, 18th June 2021, 7:00 PM
The lecturer Professor Dr D Ben Rees has first hand knowledge of the market town of Tregaron as he was born nearby. He gives an account of the town, starting at the Square near the statue of Henry Richard, a politician and pacifist who was born in 1812 in the town. Richard’s influence is felt at the local Grammar School, which is known today as the Henry Richard School. The teachers and famous pupils of the school are mentioned. We are also reminded of the importance of fishing on the River Teifi, the horses and horse races, the Red Kite, the Cors Caron bog, the local Robin Hood – Twm Siôn Cati, the eisteddfodol tradition of music and poetry, religion, and the Welsh Language. All this awaits those who will attend the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Tregaron in August 2022.

This presentation brings together Liverpool manufacturers Hornby, Lotus and Wingrove and Rogers.
