Sustainability Tour of Earthship

12th September 2018, 09:30 to 12:30, Brighton

Join Utilise Plus for a Sustainability Tour of Earthship in Brighton. Earthship was built in 2006 by the Low Carbon Trust, to show how a low-energy and low-waste future could look. An ‘off-grid’ building, Earthship generates power from the sun, harvests rain water, and treats wastewater on-site using plants! Delegates will be treated to a tour of the building to see first-hand the multitude of energy-saving measures throughout. Mischa Hewitt, Director of the Low Carbon Trust, will discuss these various sustainability features and answer questions from delegates.
