As delegates from around the globe are currently meeting in Glasgow for COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, two Wiltshire Council projects are being exhibited at the event, showcasing efforts to reduce carbon emissions throughout the county. The conference runs until Friday November 12th.
The first of the two projects to feature at the conference is the Community Environmental Toolkit, produced in conjunction with Natural England, which gives local groups the tools they need to improve habitats and the natural environment in their area.
The second is the Salisbury River Park, a collaboration with the Environment Agency, with support from the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) and Salisbury City Council. The project will create a green link through the centre of the city, bringing major environmental improvements and mitigating against flooding.
