Renewables

Renewable energy is still the future.

We have particular experience working with renewable energy developers, offering communities around proposed and existing developments interactive and informative climate change and renewable energy workshops, events and education materials for both adults and children. Our approach has proved to be an extremely effective way of engaging with communities, helping address local concerns, and making complex information accessible in an interesting and fun way.

Launching our new, inspiring renewables education project – ‘Under the Sky’ 

Reaching 1000 children in 2017.

With your support we can make this happen. 

A donation of £200 a month will enable 200 children to experience renewable energy in action and to learn about the science of climate change.

The Under the Sky project is about promoting renewable energy, and the renewables industry, as a positive solution to climate change. The project can be used to help promote the work your company is doing. By supporting ‘Under the Sky’ you will also be promoting what the renewables industry is achieving (despite the current political barriers), and helping to empower local communities to become more knowledgeable and involved in renewable energy development.

Scottish Renewables and Vegware UK’s community fund are supporters of the Under the Sky community outreach project.
