Please share with your networks/contacts and via social media.  It would be great to see a strong community presence at this event.

The first Fife Environment Partnership Conference and Fair on the 20th September brings together community groups, social enterprises, business, public bodies, Councillors, Fife Council staff and FEP members who will be showcasing their Carbon Reduction projects.   The Partnership is looking to encourage partnership projects, share information and enable funding to reduce carbon emissions.

This free all day event is at the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline. Any community group involved in projects to reduce carbon can have a stall at the fair, to promote and showcase their project, and attend the conference.

There are only 200 invites so to ensure yours please contact Carolynm.bell@refsol.co.uk or call her on 07813112780  or click on the link below .
