I was thrilled to see the highly anticipated “Carbon Bubble” at the Beacon Park Fun Day. This remarkable initiative is part of the collective effort by the Staffordshire Sustainability Board, consisting of Staffordshire County Council and the eight district and borough councils, to combat climate change and promote sustainability across the county.

The Carbon Bubble garnered immense attention, and rightly so. It served as a captivating visual representation of the carbon emissions we produce and the profound implications they have on our planet. Lichfield residents and visitors had a unique opportunity to witness the magnitude of this environmental challenge and be inspired to take actionable steps towards a sustainable future.

With the Carbon Bubble making its stop in Lichfield, our aim was to engage the local community, businesses, and stakeholders in a meaningful conversation about the impact of carbon emissions on our planet and the collective actions we can take to mitigate these effects; and we had many insightful and thought-provoking chats with people of all ages and backgrounds.

We collaborated with leading environmental experts and organisations to bring the Carbon Bubble Tour into the district, which is thoughtfully designed to spark impactful discussions and educate residents about climate change. We want to inspire change at both individual and community levels, empowering you with knowledge and resources to make climate-friendly choices in your daily lives.

I am looking forward to sharing a new initiative in the coming weeks to help us all to understand the impact of our recycling and how we can work together to improve it so that we all benefit.
