Meg Allin and Sacha Fairweather meet Catriona Cockburn, a local environmental campaigner who is part of the newly formed Charity Petersfield Climate Action Network, or “PeCAN”.

Catriona says:

“I feel very privileged to live and bring my children up in Petersfield. I want to ensure that this beautiful place can be enjoyed for generations to come. The climate crisis is the greatest single threat humanity faces and we need to act now. I believe we need to understand the Climate Crisis, be Empowered with Solutions and Be The Change”.
