New series of free Carbon Conversations workshops starts April 20th

All welcome to join our Tenth Series of free local Carbon Conversations!
Do you want to make some changes to reduce your carbon footprint, save energy and save on your bills, but you're not sure how or where to start?

Join a group of local residents in a series of 6 meetings to explore how small changes can make a big difference.
You'll assess your own carbon footprint, then together we'll look at home energy, transport and travel, food, consumption and waste to help you make changes that fit your situation. We'll help you make an action plan of practical steps to take. The workshops are free.

When?
  • Sessions will take place on Thursdays between 20th April - 25th May 2017
  • Specific dates are 20th April, 27th April, 4th May, 11 May, 18 May, 25th May
  • they will run from 7:00 - 9:00pm
Where?
  • At 96 Besley St, SW16 6BD
What do we do in the sessions?

For a start, they are enjoyable!
We discuss what's important to us about 'low carbon living' - our values as well as technicalities. We're meeting in the home of one of the facilitators, so it's a friendly atmosphere and you can bring cake or samosas...!
We play some creative and instructive games, which lead to more discussion and planning. This one is about making travel choices.





We look at technical information, too. 
In this example we're exploring where heat loss occurs in a normal house.

We ask for a voluntary contribution of £16.00 per participant to cover the direct cost of “In Time for Tomorrow?” the excellent Carbon Conversations handbook published by The Surefoot Effect.
