Renewable Energy Breakfast: Taking a village to zero carbon, with Sonya Bedford

Join us on Wednesday morning as Sonya Bedford shares the exciting story of one village’s journey to zero carbon. The talk will cover how a village is taking away its dependence on fossil fuels through a programme of renewable energy; transport; biodiversity and other actions. We will cover targets and approaches to zero carbon on a village level and the ability to combat climate change through increased renewable energy generation and wellbeing.

There will be an opportunity to network in small groups with colleagues from across the sector both before and after the talk. Bring your own breakfast and start the day inspired!
