THE North Devon coastal village of Hartland will be joining thousands of communities across the world when it takes part in a week of events to raise awareness of climate change later this month.
Pictures of villagers lining up along Fore Street to mark International Day of Climate Change Action on Saturday, October 24, will be sent to the 350.org website along with images from an estimated 1,600 events being held in 128 countries all over the world.
The "Hands across Hartland" in "the Town that Cares" event, sponsored by Churches Together in Hartland, takes place at 10.30am. It will be followed by a talk about climate change by Satish Kumar, editor of Resurgence Magazine, at the Church Rooms off the Hartland Square car park at 11am.
"Leading scientists say the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide - measured in 'Parts Per Million - in our atmosphere is 350ppm,"said spokesperson Sky McCain.
