Making the local low-carbon future happen now!

On Thursday 15th March there were two fascinating local meetings which illustrated some of the interrelated aspects of making the low-carbon future a reality.

The first one was held in the afternoon at S Thames College in Wandsworth, and speakers examined ways that the community can anticipate, influence and make the most of initiatives such as the Green Deal.
(TTT has been a partner in a 4 month project organised by the Greener Jobs Alliance). As well as the work experience with S Thames College students, and sharing the excellent activities in local schools, and encouraging the development of the Furzedown Low Carbon Zone, an outcome of the project will be a short video examining some of the challenges and practical responses. The video was premiered on the 15th. When the edit is complete, we'll make it available on YouTube... Oscars look out!
For more information on the project, please email TTT at transitiontowntooting@gmail.com


The same evening saw a celebration party and an interim thank-you with the many volunteers, partners, advisors and investors who have helped establish the Brixton Energy share offer which is funding the rooftop renewable energy power station in the Loughborough Estate.
















They are keen to share experience and learning, and we'll be talking in detail with them to help 'Repowering South London', and explore developing a local project like this that is suitable for Tooting.
Congratulations! http://brixtonenergy.co.uk/
