Saving the planet can be fun!
That’s the message organisers want visitors to the launch of the first Harrogate District Climate Action Festival (CAFé) to take home after enjoying a great day out.
The three-week event will be launched at Harrogate College on Saturday 2 October when dozens of exhibitors will be talking about, and showing, how they are adapting to secure a more sustainable future.
What Does the Future Look Like? is free to attend, runs from 10am to 4pm, and aims to inspire visitors while shining a light on all kinds of green innovations.
