Let's get Reading!
HCC Reads aims to engage the residents of Halton in reading, listening to and asking about Climate change while learning how we, as a community, can act to protect our planet. It is a program of the Halton Climate Collective and is driven by the Halton Environmental Network. There are 3 ways to get involved:
Let’s Read: We read the selected book, available in your local library or book store.
Let’s Listen: the author will join us and speak about their book, their journey and about climate change.
Let’s Ask: We ask the author questions about their book and climate change.
