Hands-on practical training
In-person training in Passivhaus standards begins early this year at our Innovation Factory. Due to the recent spike in Covid-19, we have decided to postpone the January 18th training, which will be rescheduled for later in Spring. Email Caitriona Jordan or register interest to take part for free.
Low Carbon Learning Launch
"Imagine a Scotland where nobody live in fuel poverty, where nobody returns at the end of the day to a cold and mouldy house, where our vulnerable members of society are not at risk of dyeing from living in cold homes in the winter or homes which overheat in summer. Where everybody has a warm comfortable place to live."
Low Carbon Learning can help make that a reality.
