Since March, EnviroCentre has been hosting monthly workshops to Ottawa residents on a variety of topics ranging from basic bike maintenance, understanding utility bills and misconceptions about draftiness and windows.
Given that two of the major areas contributing to greenhouse gas emissions in Canada come from the energy sector, such as heat and electricity generation, and transportation, the workshops aim to educate and empower residents on aspects of home energy efficiency and getting around more sustainably, so they can make changes within their own lives and contribute on a grander scale to the problem of climate change that faces us all.
The next workshop is coming up this Thursday, June 25 and is on the theme of how an energy assessment can help you plan your next reno. Register now for this workshop!
