Cosy Up! Draught-proofing workshops

Draught-proofing Workshops posterWe’ve teamed up with Carbon Co-op and St Nicks to offer you two workshops on Sunday 2nd February. Please follow the links for more details and help spread the word by passing them on.

2-4pm Draught-proofing workshop: For little or no money you could make your home more comfortable, cheaper to run and reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating unwanted draughts. This workshop, led by Aneaka Kellay from Carbon Co-op, will cover the basics of how heat is lost in a home, how to find leaks and how to fix them. It will also look at the risks and issues around moisture management and ventilation. Suitable for homeowners, renters, and students looking to make their homes warmer on a budget; no prior experience needed.YCE Energy Champions

On the same day we’re also running a full day training for draught-busting, Energy Champions keen to share their skills:

9am-5pm Training for Energy Champions: Including the above session, gain more in-depth knowledge of draught-proofing so that you can help others. Around a third of the UK’s carbon emissions come from housing, most of which is in urgent need of radical improvement to tackle climate change and increase our resilience to its impacts. Help York achieve this by becoming an Energy Champion with York Community Energy.
