Get ClimateWise Now! Workshops – How to reduce your carbon emissions

Posted in Events by Ferne Edwards on April 6th, 2008

Climate change requires urgent action by all. In recognition of this Manningham City Council has taken the lead to initiate the carbon rationing action groups to pool community enthusiasm and resources to make a real practical difference now.

Staff and residents of Manningham have the opportunity to learn how to make substantial reductions in their carbon emissions and create change by becoming involved in Carbon Rationing Action Groups (CRAG’s). The ‘Get ClimateWise Now!’ program is offering residents a series of eight workshops covering topics such as solar electricity, solar hot water and heating, domestic wind energy, electric transportation options, green building & retrofits, greens financing, food miles and serious recycling with discounts and exciting offers for carbon rationing participants.

The 6th workshop ‘Green Building/Renovations & Double Gazing Options‘ has a great speaker on the green building topic plus has an introduction into the CRAG groups and the great offers for sustainable technology and home energy audits.
