Our work is largely undertaken by several working groups who meet online weekly to focus on different themes. You’re most welcome to join one or more of these groups to help with the work, to contribute your own ideas or specialist expertise, or simply to find out more.
Each working group is collating the excellent ideas, plans and solutions from across Shropshire and around the globe to create the right plans for our county, informed by stakeholder engagement and inputs from all those who want to get involved.
Whether you have sector-specific knowledge, are a local practitioner, or simply an interested local resident who wants to offer some ideas, you can join one of the working group meetings by signing up at https://zerocarbonshropshire.org/sign-up/ and indicate which group you would like to join.

We will be recording each meeting and providing access to the video for those in working groups who are unable to make a particular meeting.
If the meeting you want to attend is taking place during your working hours then we encourage you to inform your employer and ask them to sign up as a member of SCAP and also to confirm that they are happy to provide you with a couple of hours per week for you to contribute to this important project. There are no employers in Shropshire that are not affected by the climate emergency and we look forward to them supporting this initiative!
