Info links for our Housing Event

Housing Event, March 2012 presentations:

“It is a serious distortion to imply, as the top ten lists usually do, that there is any equivalence between these lifestyle preferences and the serious decisions that really reduce emissions –stopping flying, living close to work and living in a well insulated house …  use recycling as a means of discharging responsibility … adopt the simplest solutions as a part of a deliberate denial strategy that enables them to feel virtuous without changing their real behaviour.”

“What are the options to low efficiency light bulbs,  food that has been flown in,  cars that do less than 40mpg,  any kind of flying (or highly restricted) … necessity is the mother of invention”. Ban flights would allow investment in eco-friendly alternatives, massive investment in high-tech sailing boats, telecommunications alternatives, local food, eco-friendly flying to name a few.

Living as we did in the 1950s may save the Earth and us“.

About actionforinvolvment

We're an independent think tank, founded in 2006 to bring people in our communities together with policymakers and stakeholders. We create space often in a workshop format to pool ideas, develop networks and tackle hot topics. Since 2009, we’ve focused on the sustainability agenda such as: climate change, energy, housing, technology, transport with interest in:education, health, welfare, regulation and enforcement. Our latest project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering Ingenious Grant and our next event on 27th June 2013 includes George Monbiot with other high level environmental policy makers.
