Lewes Eco Open Houses
Lewes: 13-14 September 2014
Ditchling, Barcombe & rural: 20-21 September 2014
Lewes Eco Open Houses will run its fifth annual event over two weekends in September 2014. 16 eco-friendly homes will open their doors to the public, six for the first time.
The inspiring homes on show range from renovated Victorian cottages to 1960's conversions and stunning architect designed new-build properties. Properties in the villages and countryside feature exciting off grid measures such as air, ground and water source heat pumps, as well as being examples of good eco building. All have drastically cut their electricity, gas and water bills as well as carbon emissions.
The homes are free to visit and all are welcome. Visitors can see and hear how - with a bit of determination and imagination - it is possible to make cost effective alterations that will significantly reduce a home's energy consumption. Further information here...
What is Transition?
|When with TTL recently, Rob Hopkins asked people "What is Transition?". Here's what they told him...|
Transition Town Lewes (TTL) is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.
And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.
Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment.
