BEN open meeting: Energy Conversations

How do we help to create behaviour, social and political change that will:

  1. Support the transition to renewable energy
  2. Tackle fuel poverty
  3. Improve energy efficiency and reduce energy use?

Many approaches have been used to start and deepen energy conversations in the city, including community meals, stalls at events, distributing fliers, practical workshops, campaigns and direct action. What methods are most effective in raising awareness about energy, bringing about behaviour change or mobilising people to take political action? What works best with different communities? Do some approaches work better for different issues? Come to this event to learn and share experiences of using different approaches and tactics.

Speakers so far include Green and Black Ambassadors, Ambition Lawrence Weston, Biofuelwatch and Residents Against Dirty Energy (RADE). The meeting is taking place at Baggator, which recently received funding from the Bristol Community Energy Fund to carry out energy efficiency measures and educational activities for young people around energy saving.

Come for food at networking at 6.30pm. The meeting will start promptly at 7pm. Location: Baggator: The Pickle Factory, 13 All Hallows Road, Bristol BS5 0HH. All welcome.
