MEA recognises that our communities offer the potential for sustained action on fuel poverty, climate change and wider sustainability. We believe this can create more inclusive and resilient communities better able to respond to these challenges.
We also know that communities need support to make this happen. We think we can help. Below are some areas where we could work together:
- We currently run a successful Climate Change Communications Service, now in its 10th year, which raises awareness about climate change and encourages individuals and communities to take positive steps towards a low carbon lifestyle. It supports community groups across two counties via a monthly newsletter, website, training and events. We would be happy to develop a similar service for other areas.
- Our Fantastic Home exhibition is a mobile energy efficiency exhibition – a “house on wheels” – which offers home energy efficiency and domestic renewables advice in a fun, interactive and engaging way. It visits around 20 community-focused events per year. It is available for hire and comes with an experienced, qualified member of our staff.
