As part of the SELFCiTY project team, I attended a workshop for neighbourhood leaders for the implementation of a Cool Communities Programme in Winchester (England). Winchester Climate Action on Climate Change (WINACC) are running training courses for volunteers who want to engage their neighbours on the issue of lowering their carbon footprint. We (as the SELFCiTY team UK) are looking at ways we can support and complement this project and the volunteers who will be pounding the streets of their neighbourhood over the next couple of weeks. These brave volunteers are looking for advice from others who might have already done this…..
