This event is brought to you by Zero Carbon Liverpool project, a partnership between Liverpool Community Renewables (LCR) and the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) and funded by the Big Lottery.
Zero Carbon Britain is a research project led by CAT. Zero Carbon Britain has developed an energy model for the UK mapping a route to a 100% renewable energy system. They have recently published a report Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen, that considers the challenge of changing perceptions about climate change within society, and addressing other non-technical barriers to action.
The Zero Carbon Liverpool project seeks to bring the thinking of Zero Carbon Britain to the Liverpool City Region. There will be an opportunity to learn more about the funding which Zero Carbon Liverpool has won in order to take individuals to CAT for a short-course on Zero Carbon Britain June 7th-8th.
