Spotlight on sustainability this Climate Week
Posted on 4 Oct 2019
It’s Climate Week from Monday, October 7, to Sunday, October 13, and North Ayrshire Council is holding a number of events aimed at facilitating climate change discussions and highlighting ways we can work together to become a more sustainable community.
On Monday, October 7, Citrus Energy will be at Kilwinning Library to offer support in reducing energy use in the home, as well as making sure you are getting the best deal. They will also be at Saltcoats Library on Friday, October 11.
On Thursday, October 10, members of the public are invited to come along to Irvine’s Trinity Active Travel Hub to receive information and support on saving energy and money. This drop-in event runs from 10am to 2pm and representatives from Home Energy Scotland and Citrus Energy will be on hand to help with switching suppliers and improving energy efficiency.
And Arran residents are invited to attend a Scottish Government workshop on Thursday from 11.30am to 2pm in Brodick Hall, Arran, where the subject will be heat networks on islands.
North Ayrshire Council recently declared a Climate Emergency and is currently seeking your views on what can be done together to prevent irreversible damage to our environment.
A consultation called ‘Climate Change: Just Cool It’ can be accessed online, and you are invited to join the debate and share your views on the subject.
The comments, suggestions and views you share throughout the consultation period will help to determine the goals which must be set for the Council to achieve its bid to become a net-zero carbon local authority.
