Carbon Co-Op

In December the Carbon Co-op (http// ran a series of workshops at MadLab entitled Community Renewables Finance School.

The workshops focused on providing specialist technical, legal and financial support for people and groups looking to instigate low carbon projects in their communities.

We had all sorts of people including enthusiastic volunteers, people running community buildings, larger projects and a number of vicars we crumbling church buildings on their hands.

Everyone was looking to make improvements in their local communities, bringing people together and doing their bit for the environment.

MadLab was a fantastic venue for us as we could be really flexible and had all the technical facilities we could need. When we return next time we want to help MadLab improve their insulation, saving money and carbon emissions and keeping us all a little bit warmer!
