“Take one clueless writer keen to join the tiny house movement, add in an eco-friendly course at Machynlleth’s Centre for Alternative technology and the results are … something solid to build on.”
Changing our behaviour is essential for a rapid transition to a zero carbon future, and there are many insights from psychology and behavioural change studies that can be useful in helping make change happen in our homes, communities and places of work.
How would you like to have media and communications systems you could trust to tell the truth about the really important things?
Our values and worldviews are central to how we comprehend the world around us, and how we see our place in it. Understanding how this shapes our attitudes and actions towards nature could be a key part of facilitating the shift to zero carbon.
Would you like to live in a zero carbon future, where a whole new approach to energy has delivered benefits not just for the planet, but also for people and communities?
Rethinking how we access the energy we need is a key challenge as we work to build a zero carbon future. Changing our approach to the production and ownership of energy — who generates it, and who profits — could have many wider benefits, including for people and communities that could benefit financially from local renewable energy projects.
