My name is Peter Anderson. I’ve been developing digital and face to face tools for meaningful dialogue with stakeholders. Engaging people is difficult, organising volunteers can be even more so. Our Sustainability page outlines an ambition to scale up the replication of the best environmental, social, financial projects for discovery, adaptation and replication by local communities, many of which Renew Wales are already engaged with in some form or another. http://about.vocaleyes.org/sectors/sustainability/ More general info here: https://about.vocaleyes.org And recent activities here http://blog.vocaleyes.org
Tell us about one or more experience of your work with Renew. Who was the group and what did they want, what action plan did they have, how did you help them and what happened next.
Carmarthenshire Energy needed help engaging their members and attendees to their events.
We ran digital and face to face sessions with attendees requesting ideas to improve their project.
One of the questions being asked was “How can we sell as many shares as possible?” The highest rated idea suggest by attendees was “Talk to dairy milk farmers in the area”.
This was perused the following day and every was very pleased to see that some of the farmers bought a significant number of shares!
What is your vision of your region in 2050? What will have changed and how will we have got there?
All communities will have developed skills and capacity for engaging in a process of discovery, adaptation and replication of the best projects that exist in Wales and from around the world.
All communities will have a Climate Change action plan that defines their route-map to developing sustainability, health & resilience.
We will have reduced carbon emission to sustainable limits – well below 350ppm and be well on our journey to reducing them to preindustrial levels.
