In ‘Powerful’, green economy educator David Chernushenko embarks on a global journey to examine the alternatives to the conventional energy system, experiencing the critical resistance being met along the way. Tackling the spin of the big energy lobby and, equally, dispelling the myths of a ‘green utopia’ Powerful is a candid examination of what a sustainable future could look like. From amazing innovators, eccentric eco-activists to average communities completely powered by renewable energy, David will begin to discover that the true power is in the political, economic and democratic change that the clean energy revolution can deliver.

If you attended our showing of Gasland 2 on Sunday, you may have met with the MSc. researchers from University of West London who are studying the adaptability of new and old houses to Climate-Change related weather patterns; e.g. more frequent and hotter heat-waves, and more extreme rainfall events.
Thanks if you agreed to help them with their research!
On Tuesday 25th March, UWL, conjunction with West London Business are holding an evening of talks about the work of the University in this area, covering energy efficiency and adaptability, and some of the state-of-the-art tools used for studying and planning adaptations.
The event is aimed at the Building Industry, but open to those with a strong interest in this area.
The event runs from 6pm to 8pm, at the St.Mary’s Road campus, with drinks and canapés after the talks in the award-winning Pillars restaurant (which, if you attended Edible Ealing’s 1st Birthday celebration, you know will be good!).
Tickets are free, but strictly require booking on a “first-come-first-served” basis.
Please contact Ali Bahadori-Jahromi at Ali.Bahadori-Jahromi@uwl.ac.uk to book a place.
