This is part of our Unlocking Local Action series of events.

Community is the lens so often left out of the environmental discussion, but it’s vital in implementing lasting solutions. Rather than conceiving a “master” climate action plan at arm’s length, people in many areas are co-creating local plans and low-carbon initiatives. In this series of short talks, we hear from guest speakers about how they engage the broader community in their work and compare and contrast the different ways of bringing more people together.

This session on Energising Your Community, featuring special guest speaker Grant Peisley, of Community Energy Wales and DEG, focused on the wider benefits of community energy schemes, from generating new community funds to learning opportunities to boosting employment.
