On Wednesday 7th September, University of Birmingham is hosting an event for researchers, activists, policy makers, citizens and community champions to talk, learn about and share knowledge on Birmingham, Climate Change, Fuel Poverty and Open Data.
This workshop is for the East Birmingham Community Heat Test and Learn Project funded by the Cadent Foundation, led by University of Birmingham with Places in Common and the Active Wellbeing Society.
The event will take place in the Old Gym building on the UoB Edgbaston Campus (Room LG10 with breakout sessions and lunch in LG06) between 10.00 and 17.00 with presentations and activities from University of Birmingham (Dr Grant Wilson and Dr Joe Day), open data experts and community activist and engagement organisations. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The session is very much about setting the scene and framing the narrative on how the citizen and wider civic community is integral to the value of data and therefore has rights of ownership and application in a net zero pathway very much as part of the system change not climate change argument. We will then be taking the findings from this workshop into a wider challenge session with key public and private agencies.
More details and registration can be found at the Eventbrite page.
