Plymouth Community Climate Centre, a social enterprise dedicated to engaging, educating and empowering communities to respond to the climate crisis, opened in New George Street.

This welcoming and collaborative community space gathers and signposts events, activities, people and organisations.

The flagship Climate Hub in the old Waterstones building is one of the first city centre Climate Hubs in the world. It has full use of three beautiful floors at the high street venue for at least six months in order to empower people and organisations, as part of Plymouth’s Meanwhile Use scheme.

TO ENGAGE: The Climate Hub will organise and host activities and exhibitions to engage people of as many different backgrounds as possible, with events, workshops, exhibitions, talks, people’s assemblies and, of course, a zero waste shop and vegan café!

TO EDUCATE: The Climate Hub will provide a range of trustworthy, evidence-based knowledge and accessible resources that can support people, organisations and communities to develop their understanding of the climate crisis.

TO EMPOWER: The Climate Hub will create and share opportunities to take meaningful and tangible action to address the climate crisis, from reducing emissions and energy use, to transitioning to a circular economy.

The space at the Communuity Climate Centre was also filled by Down Stage Write for a series of playwriting workshops and short plays that tackle the climate crisis. You can find out more by watching the video below:
