An Eco Series: Session 2
Facilitators: Kit Dixon, Good Energy
As a Centre for Future Thinking with an awareness of wellbeing, we felt it was only right that we put together a programme to inspire sustainable living in the home this winter.
Amongst immense pressure, change, uncertainty and chaos, we know that to give you the whole planet to think about is quite a thing. From our very own experience, we see small practical action to be what initiates big change.
This is session 2 of a 4-part series: Sustainable living: an eco-series, delivered via Zoom.
Event time: Thu 26th Nov 2020 at 4:30pm - Thu 26th Nov 2020 at 5:30pm
Sustainable Living: An eco-series
Session 2 with Kit Dixon, Good Energy, November 26th 4:30-5:30 pm
With 2019 seeing a landmark ‘net-zero’ emissions target brought into UK law, many aspects of our lives are set to change. How we interact with energy is no exception. Not all of this change can be delivered ‘behind the scenes’, and so it is important that we do our best to understand the impact our energy use has on the world around us. Kit will discuss how the energy system works in the UK and the ways in which it impacts us; where we get our energy from, and why how we use it is really important too; and finally some key actions we can all consider, to ensure we are all playing a part in the fight against climate change.
This series is brought to you by Hawkwood Centre for Future Thinking made possible with support from the Summerfield Charitable Trust.
