EVENT: Green your home

Am going to an interesting event tonight:

Going Green: Make it happen to your home
New-build eco-homes may be one solution to becoming more sustainable. But what can you do to go green if you live in a period property? This informal event will be a unique opportunity for homeowners to see how they could make their own homes more sustainable, be they a Victorian terrace or a 1930s semi.

Come along to meet leaders in the field of sustainable housing, see for yourself some of the most innovative eco-products you could install in your own home, and talk to homeowners who've already 'taken the plunge' and made their houses more environmentally friendly.

Speakers include:
Craig Anders
Design Director, INTEGER Intelligent and Green

Bill Dunster
Founder, Bill Dunster Architects ZEDfactory Ltd

Simon Gerrard
Solar energy expert, Solar Century

Nick Hopper
Natural lighting and ventilation expert, Monodraught

Representatives from Ecoplay and Windsave will also be attending to showcase greywater recycling and domestic wind turbine technology.

Anyone else going? Will report back with pictures.
