Thank you to all the businesses and community groups that attended the launch of our new climate exhibition last week.

Through a collection of photos, the ‘Our journey to net zero’ exhibition tells the stories of local organisations who, with the help of our Low Carbon Dorset programme, are cutting emissions and helping tackle climate change.

The exhibition will be touring the county throughout the summer. To find out when and where you can see it, visit our website (link in comments 👇)
