IMAGINE Living Better

About

Wouldn't it be wonderful to wake up to an easier day, every day? Imagine that the house is already warm (you don't need heating anymore), that you are breathing in fresh, clean air (in your 'healthy' house). When you turn the lights on you are getting free power (thanks to your solar panels) and flushing the loo is free too (rainwater does the job perfectly). Your commute to work is a relaxing cycle ride along a car-free road (you share a car these days, along with lawn mowers and power tools!). In your lunch hour you go to one of the repair cafes where they 3D print a new switch to mend your favourite vintage lamp (and it doesn't break the bank). This may sound like the future, but this is all happening right now. Tempted…? Come and find out how to make this life your new reality.

With guest speakers Agamemnon Otero, Sue Riddlestone, Paul Allen and Tina Evans.
Paul Allen
Paul has lived with and worked with renewable energy technologies for 30 years. He joined the Centre for Alternative Technology in 1988, developing a wide range of renewable energy systems. Paul has led the ground-breaking Zero Carbon Britain research for 10 years; liaising directly with Government, business, public sector and the arts. This groundbreaking report demonstrates that we have the technology and research already in place to rapidly take Britain to a zero carbon reality. www.zerocarbonbritain.com
