Thanks to SEEd News for alerting us that The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) will be delivering a hands-on workshop for KS3 and 4 at the ASE Annual Conference, 2017.

This will look at renewable and non-renewable energy resources within the context of eco-systems, atmospheric science and the impacts of increased levels of carbon dioxide and methane. From everyday living to envisioning the future, the workshop asks how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As well as a range of hands-on workshops available for any level from nursery to KS5 and FE, CAT’s education department has a selection of downloadable resources that can be freely accessed and used in a range of ways from improving knowledge, concepts, terminology and vocabulary, to building on understanding of the carbon cycle and the impact of human activity.  During their ASE workshop, How low can we go?, CAT’s dedicated educator Deirdre Raffan will make reference to a scenario showing the technical feasibility of Britain producing zero net GHG emissions.
