The World Naked Bike Ride: Why do 250 people strip naked and cycle through London’s busiest streets on a chilly summer’s day in 2005? Narrated by cyclist and Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, this film tells the story of a small collective organising the largest naked protest event in British history. “It’s nudity with a purpose” says ride organiser Jesse Schust, “The ride makes people smile while raising important environmental questions about climate change, oil dependency, pollution, and sustainable transport.”

Free 1-2-1 Home Energy Check

Are you concerned about the Environment? Would you like to reduce household bills and your carbon footprint?

Worldwide, individuals, organisations and governments are trying to reduce carbon emissions for a fairer future for all. It’s not easy to know what to do on a personal level, so, here is one way of finding out about many things we can all do to reduce our energy use and carbon emissions.

Stourbridge Low Carbon Community project is run by a committed team of volunteers, fully trained by Marches Energy Agency (www.mea.org.uk), to assist local people to reduce their household energy bills and thus their carbon footprints.

As part of this project, we are offering free Household Energy Checks. These take around an hour to complete.

The Home Energy Check will enable you to:

·       calculate your carbon footprint
·       learn about effective ways of reducing energy consumption
·       assess your house potential for renewable technology
