Welcome to Greener Together for Chorleywood. Climate change is a huge issue, some would say the biggest problem in the world. Whilst these issues may seem daunting, with a feeling of “where do we start” or “how on earth can one person or family solve it”, we hope that Greener Together can help. It will be here on our website where we will provide tips on what you can do NOW to help the Climate. There will be links on Climate Change and Sustainability Strategies from our Three Rivers District Council, Hertfordshire County Council, Chorleywood Parish Council as well as Government schemes. Look for handy hints on saving our precious natural resources and interesting (and frightening) information on things we probably already know, but are not putting into practice.
As a community we can prove that little steps to save our resources will help our current climate. We are in this together, so let’s get Greener Together!

A local “COP” event, was hosted by Three Rivers to promote knowledge, exchange ideas, and act to mitigate adverse climate change. 150 or more wide-ranging participants saw a thought-provoking film “2040” which, despite all the grim alerts, offered hope – provided we change.
