Fuel poverty is a major problem across London. Action and policy change is needed on a large scale, to cut energy waste in this city, to improve health, increase employment opportunities and save lives and to create warm homes for all Londoners. This event will seek to bring together organisations that work to tackle fuel poverty with social housing landlords, local authorities, public health agencies, community and residents associations, environmental organisations, energy companies, academics and government bodies to identify new integrated approaches to health, energy social justice and climate change.
There will be a range of practical workshops on: local community energy and efficiency schemes; lobbying & campaigning, public health and others.
Confirmed workshops:

  • Invest in local solar power, earn a good return, combat climate change and help the community – Repowering London
  • A practitioner’s experience on reducing fuel poverty – Energise Barnet
  • ‘Developing outreach in the community that can initiate change by creating conversations about energy’ and ‘Building partnerships with organisations across the Borough that help to make energy a priority for everyone.’ – Living Under one Sun

The event will be chaired by Chris Church from Community Environment Associates
This event has been organised by the London Voluntary Sector Council’s Climate Change Leaders for a Low Carbon London project
