Future Proofing Your House – A Co–operative Approach

Thu 4th October 2018, Room 00–021, Ground Floor, Ulster University, York Street, Belfast BT15 1ED

Talk by Jonathan Atkinson from the Carbon Co–op in Manchester

Chaired by Professor Tom Woolley

The need to renovate and insulate older houses is an important issue for society. As energy costs continue to grow and climate and weather patterns change we need to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Northern Ireland has the highest level of fuel poverty in Europe. Tenants, landlords and home owners find it hard to get good advice about how to insulate and improve their houses. Even where grants are available, there is confusion about the best measures to take. Many houses suffer from damp and mould and poor indoor air quality.

This event will provide an opportunity to learn from the excellent work of the Carbon Co–op and to discuss possible initiatives in Northern Ireland. 

It is supported by a number of leading organisations concerned about these issues, Bryson Energy, National Energy Action, Co–operative Alternatives and Belfast School of Architecture.

Come and learn about how to improve your house.
