Harrow Council is holding its first Climate Change Fair, where you can learn what climate change is, how it will affect us and what we can do about it!
There will be an activities area where many engaging activities will be held, including:
- Energy Bike, where your pedal power is used to power a light bulb, an MP3 player or a Hi-Fi.
- Carbon Gym – ‘feel’ how heavy carbon dioxide emissions are by lifting weights.
- Ecodriving simulator – drive a virtual car and see how you can reduce your emissions.
Council departments will present information on transport, air quality and energy efficiency, and environmental charities and businesses in the energy sector will host stalls. Have a browse around and find out what others are doing to protect the environment and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
When you want a break from learning about carbon emissions, energy saving and global warming, relax with our entertainment. There will be several acts starting at 12:00, including opera, Indian dance, and instrumental jazz and blues.
We also have a couple of other attractions that we hope to present; please check the Events section of www.harrow.gov.uk for updates!
In keeping with the theme of the fair, we encourage you to come by public transport or by low-emission forms of transport. This includes by bus (H11, H12, H13, 183), train (to Pinner Underground station), cycling or walking. Please check your route and service availability before you travel.
The park can be divided into two grassy areas. In one of them, we will provide space for stalls from second parties (businesses and organisations). Also in this area there will also be an entertainment tent, where we plan to have dance and music acts throughout the day for the public’s enjoyment. In the other area, the council-hosted marquees and displays will be held.
I hope this has been helpful; please contact me if you have further questions (contact details are in my signature).
