INFORMATION AND NEWS  

Fuelling Empowerment: new community energy champions in Tottenham


The energy transition leading to a sustainable low-carbon future is as much about use and supply of energy as about generation. En10ergy has recently been part of an exciting project to train energy champions in Tottenham.

With energy bills going up, affordable warmth is a growing issue for many people in Haringey. En10ergy has been proud to work with Living Under One Sun, an inspirational charity that has been working in Tottenham for sixteen years.https://en10ergy.org.uk/2021/08/25/fuelling-empowerment-new-community-energy-champions-in-tottenham/

Global Day of Action for Climate Justice


As world leaders meet in Glasgow for climate talks, let’s send them a clear message:
We need a future that works for ALL of us! ACT NOW!

  • As wildfires, floods and extreme heatwaves hit Germany, Greece, Italy and Turkey, we can see at close hand how the global climate emergency is growing more acute.
  • It is people in the Global South – who have done the least to cause climate breakdown – that are the ones to endure the worst of its effects.
  •  At a local level, it is people of colour and those living in poverty who disproportionately suffer from the impacts of air pollution and climate change.

Join us in asking both local leaders and world leaders to put justice and equity at the heart of their response to the climate emergency.
More details will be sent out nearer the time.
