The aim of the Climate Hub is to act as a catalyst and incubator for new environmental projects that will make a real difference in the local area.
Bringing together all interested parties under one roof enables the sharing of ideas and resources which we hope will lead to big changes. If you have an idea or project you’d like help with please get in touch.
Please get in touch if you’d like to help with any of the following:
Our project to reduce energy use in homes across the town, including renovations, insulation, draught-proofing and renewable energy installations.
Connecting everyone who grows food – from gardeners to allotmenters to farmers.
Our spoken word night. Quarterly at the Belvedere pub in Weymouth.
Understanding local risks and how to deal with them
Taking the Climate Hub idea out on the road! We are organising events at community buildings around the town on a cyclical basis.
Coming soon (maybe, hopefully) at Weymouth Climate Hub:
Recruit and train local energy champions for each neighbourhood in the town. They can propagate advice to friends and neighbours and hopefully refer people to funding schemes, installers and other helpful organisations.
TOWN COUNCIL CEE PLAN GATEWAY
Provide a permanent display for the Town Council plan, take suggestions and feedback from the public and liaise with appropriate councillors/officers.
LOW CARBON TOOL/EN-ROADS
Have a PC constantly connected to one or other of the above tools, so anyone coming in can have a go with them. Offer workshops/training in these tools.
Have a PC available for querying our local knowledge base, so people can easily find the resources they need (eg local installer of heat-pumps).
