I work as the Outreach Officer for St Nicks, York’s centre for nature and green living. I’ve organised a series of York Open Eco Homes events and it was Carbon Co-op’s workshop for organisers of similar events that gave me an impressive introduction to the co-op a few years ago.
Also an active member of York Community Energy, I’ve become more and more aware of the need for large-scale deep retrofitting (and not just of my own house). I’ve joined the Carbon Co-op’s board in order to learn more about its highly successful, people-centred model so that we can attempt something similar in York. In return I will do anything I can to support the co-op and its staff in the great work they do.
