Winter is a time to stay indoors, get cosy, and perhaps indulge in warming food! But as we spend more time at home than ever, many of us may be worried about the cost of keeping warm. Offered by the Living Lighter project, the Winter Warmer series will comprise two fun and interactive online workshops to help us reduce our food waste (which means saving money!) and have a low-carbon home.
In this workshop, we will look at Home Energy. Houses are very personal places, often giving us comfort, security, and a place to retreat to. But energy use in homes accounts for about a quarter of our carbon footprint. Homes offer some of the easiest and cheapest ways to reduce emissions, and also some of the most complicated and expensive!
Through interactive discussions and activities, we will explore what home means to you, how to monitor your energy use, and how to have a low-carbon house that is also comfortable and warm in winter.
The workshop is free but spots are limited so please register here on Eventbrite. Participants will be emailed a Zoom meeting link prior to the event.
Note: We would love you to attend both Winter Warmer workshops, but they can be attended as stand-alone events. The first workshop on Food Waste can be booked here.
This workshop series is made possible with funding from the Climate Challenge Fund.
