Energise Sussex Coast has received funding from the Co-operative Foundation and the Postcode Lottery to explore the concept of a sustainable community space.
We have developed a vision and business plan for Hastings’ first Climate Action Hub in partnership with other groups and individuals. These include Transition Town Hastings/Sustainability on Sea, Energise South (a new co-op (CBS) set up to deliver solar installations on community buildings in Hastings), Hastings and St Leonards XR, Dens and Signals, Community Energy South and the Common Treasury of Adaptable Ideas.
Tell us your views!
We would love to know your thoughts and ideas about what shape a Climate Action Hub could take. Please take 5 minutes to fill in this short consultation questionnaire.
What if… Hastings, St Leonards and Rother had a Climate Action Hub?
A place in the town to….
- Support community groups and businesses working for a greener town
- Create space for discussions, learning, ideas and connections
- Build knowledge
- Incubate new projects and businesses
- Demonstrate sustainable technologies and practices
A space to help us transition to a zero-carbon Hastings and Rother by 2030.
Imagine… It’s 2030 and Hastings & Rother have achieved net zero carbon. This transition has resulted in better places to live for local residents. The Climate Action Hub played a huge role in mobilising the community, businesses and individuals to help make this possible.
Now think about everything that Climate Action Hub needs to do to achieve success: what is in the hub? Who is in the hub and what do they need? What resources are there? What space is there? Who uses it and why? What type of building or outside space is it? Where is it located?
Please let us know all your ideas – blue sky thinking is fine!
