Looking Forward and Public Engagement

BBC Look East interviewed Dr Cooke, prepared a piece, and broadcast it. This looked at her motivations for the project and showed the planting a ceremonial first tree. They interviewed Alison at her home in Cambridge on the 25th of October 2021. They would also like to do the same thing for public engagement with the finished project. BBC radio Cambridgeshire and BBC radio Wiltshire also recorded live interviews with Dr Cooke on the 25th and 26th of October 2021.

Cooke Associates hopes that this project will be the first of many and both an inspiring and informative method for reducing one’s carbon emissions towards the countrywide effort to net 0 by 2050. Three more similar projects are already under discussion. The details of the calculations and logistics required to facilitate this project are presented to provide accessibility for those interested. Public engagement with associates, friends, families, and platforms will continue to be a top priority.

Dr Alison Cooke also hopes to continue with similar carbon reducing projects on behalf of her children, as well as other climate friendly initiatives. Public engagements and encouragement of similar actions is pivotal to CO20, and Cooke Associates will continue to promote this kind of work as much as possible.
