Climate Change Academy with Energy Saving Trust

adultThe Energy Saving Trust, as part of Energy Saving Week are holding eight ‘Climate Change Academies’ across the UK.

The Climate Change Academies are free to attend and run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. They run from 10 – 3:30pm and include a free lunch and three workshops.

Climate change academy

The workshops held each day are:

  • What is climate change…and why save energy?
  • What can I do today?
  • What can I do next?’ which includes topics such as solar power and forming a green community.

The aim of the climate change academies is to explain what climate change is and show what can be done in people’s own homes to save the planet (and save money on their energy bills).
