Get the ideas, inspiration and skills to green up your home, business and community, with our programme of Green Build & Sustainable Living events.

We run events to help people cut their carbon footprints in all sorts of ways:

  • Retrofitting for energy efficiency
  • Low-energy new-builds
  • Growing food & foraging
  • Climate science
  • Climate emergency action for communities
  • Co-housing
  • Community energy
  • Upcycling

In the past, we concentrated most of our events into an annual festival in September, but for 2020 we had hoped to offer events throughout the year instead, giving more people the chance to benefit from them. Unfortunately, our plans have been interrupted by Coronavirus. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on future events.
