Are you working with your Council? Looking for an expert speaker to present on peak oil?
In the last newsletter you will have seen that the latest Transition Guide – Alexis Rowell’s inspiring Communities, Councils and a Low-Carbon Future: what we can do if governments won’t is now in book shops.
Alexis recommends that a useful step in engaging with your Local Authority can be to bring in an expert speaker to present to a group of Councillors and officials on peak oil. The Oil Depletion Analysis Centre (ODAC) has a programme to provide speakers for such events in the UK. There is no fee to the Council except to cover travel expenses from London. ODAC has provided speakers for a number of events around the country which have included Local Authority Energy Partnerships, Policy Forums, LA21 meetings, joint Transition/Council events and others.
If this looks useful and your Council is interested contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to keep up with peak oil news from a UK perspective you might want to sign up for ODAC’s weekly newsletter.
