Greenshare Table discussions with an environmental theme.  Some of the options available include:

Inglehome: Transforming a typically inefficient Hull terrace into a cosy, low energy superhome with zero bills.

Community Resilience: What makes a resilient community and ask people to consider 7 elements identified in the ‘Rainbow of Resilience’ and how that relates to their own geographical community.  We will start to uncover what factors make up a strong community and it also a showcase of how to run a pop up mini focus group for community asset mapping.

Energy Estuary – Hull’s real role in the energy revolution: We will be discussing the state of UK energy policy including fracking, renewables, biomass and much more and the role of communities to lead the way in creating an affordable, secure and low carbon energy system fit for the challenges of the 21stCentury.

There will be also the opportunity to take part in practical interactive sessions and networking opportunities.
