How can we help you?

Briefings

 If you want to know more about the work of the partnership or about climate change in general, we’ll be happy to give you a background briefing.

Interviews

Please get in touch if you’d like to interview someone from the partnership.

Contacts

If you’d like to showcase climate action in Cumbria or report on some other aspect of carbon reduction, we may be able to put you in touch with people or organisations to interview.

Training

If you’d like to fully understand the causes of climate change and the solutions, take our ‘carbon literacy’ course. It’s a full-day course (split over two half days, delivered online). It’ll give you the background knowledge and context to help you when reporting on climate action in Cumbria. You’ll come away with an accreditation from the Carbon Literacy Trust.

The partnership's media profile and position statements

The Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership is a very broad grouping of around 80 very diverse organisations, representing different interests, sectors and walks of life. They’ve come together as they all see the urgent need to reduce emissions to tackle climate change, but they all have their individual viewpoints and perspectives.

For that reason, you may find that the partnership won’t always want to comment on topical issues or aspects of carbon reduction, where it wouldn’t be possible to fairly reflect the views of all its participants.

We’ll always be happy to talk about the work and progress of the partnership collectively.

Quick facts

If you just need some basic facts quickly, here’s your at-a-glance guide, with links to more detail elsewhere on the website.

About the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership

About Zero Carbon Cumbria

Zero Carbon Cumbria aims to engage and involve Cumbrians in climate action in the county. Here on this website and on the Zero Carbon Cumbria social media, we’ll share examples of all the great things happening around the county to reduce emissions, to inspire more people to join in the journey to net zero carbon Cumbria.

You may already have started to see organisations across Cumbria using the Zero Carbon Cumbria branding stamp, Doing our bit!, where they’re promoting their carbon reduction activities. This is all part of tying together all the actions people are taking, helping people to see that they’re part of a bigger concerted effort. The logo is freely available for download on this website, including a user guide explaining how it should be used.

About climate change & the impact on Cumbria

About net zero

Net zero emissions simply means we’re absorbing the same amount of emissions that we produce.

Cumbria’s goal is to reduce as far as possible the emissions that cause climate change, and then absorb the remainder (eg through planting trees, changes to land use).
