Congleton Sustainability Group – CSG.
Congleton Sustainability Group (CSG) aims to raise awareness of the issues associated with the challenge of climate change and the consequent need to develop a low carbon, sustainable future through ethical, social, cultural, economic, environmental and community action to promote, encourage and support the development of education and research concerning areas affected by resource depletion.
As volunteers we work to do this by:

- Raise awareness of local food opportunities like Congleton Apple Juice & Congleton Food4Free
- Work for all of our Schools to be Green Flag Schools
- Work to protect local wildlife habitats and biodiversity
- Campaign tirelessly for better public transport, cycle routes, innovative housing design to promote healthy and sustainable living, local employment
- Campaign for a community energy scheme and work with other transition towns and similar community-led initiatives to nudge the town to make the transition to a low carbon, sustainable, ethical future.
Congleton Sustainability Group objectives include:
- Growing more food visibly, locally

- Using the River Dane to generate electricity
