Grassroots Energy Collaboration Workshop, Southwest
June 10, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
We want to promote better networking and collaborating between groups fighting against dirty energy and fuel poverty, and for community-controlled renewable energy, in order to counter government and industry efforts to “divide and rule” and to play off different important goals against each other (e.g. arguing that we need more gas because nuclear power is dangerous, or more biomass instead of coal). The focus is specifically on the UK context, and on energy for heat and power rather than for transport.
Aims of the day are:
- To facilitate collaboration and networking between grassroots groups and organisations campaigning against different forms of dirty energy and against fuel poverty, as well as those working on community renewable energy;
- To identify shared principles and campaigning objectives and messages;
- To identify scope for joint work or messaging, either between all or some participating groups.
