Following on from our 'System Change' and 'Movement of Movements' meetings we are now focussing on setting up a CEC in Exeter. Community(Climate?) Emergency Centres are inspired by https://climateemergencycentre.co.uk/ to use empty premises for community projects, using the business rates relief which otherwise landlords would be obliged to pay to gain rent free premises. Our centre will be used by a coalition of groups including XR to have public facing premises where we could hold educational events or facilitate drop ins by people wanting to learn more about the climate emergency and other social justice issues, as well as workshops and many other purposes. We now have a roadmap to obtaining premises and Phoenix and Ruth from CEC UK will be giving a presentation explaining the concept further. Please come along to learn about the project and maybe even contribute. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an link to the zoom meeting.
