There is no doubt that Climate Change will affect the world with major changes in weather patterns. Congleton Sustainability Group (CSG) founded in June 2009, to encourage people of Congleton how to live with more resilience in face of Climate Change. The carbon reduction team promotes and educates green living in Congleton and designed SLIC (Sustainable Living in Congleton) course in 2011.
Why a Green Living / SLIC Course?
- 97% of Climate scientists and Governments accept that Climate Change is happening, leading to drought, flooding, extremes of wind and temperature
- In the last 200 years, burning fossil fuels has generated higher levels of CO2 in earth’s atmosphere
- CO2 levels increased from 280 ppm to 400 ppm since the Industrial Revolution started

Carbon Reduction Report for CSG November 2015
The main emphasis of the Carbon Reduction team this month has centred on successfully concluding the SLIC 5 course through U3A with 5 volunteers, using the updated workbook and improved props for demonstrations with each of the modules. The group involved in this SLIC program have found the course fun, stimulating and an important forum for exchanging ideas for reducing their impact on global climate change.
