ACTION GROUP

SUSTAINABLE HOMES

This action group provides practical local support to help people to make their homes more environmentally friendly, cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in.

The group’s flagship event is renew’s Sustainable House Day, in September each year. We are working to establish a program of events throughout the year, to help our members convert the inspiration from SHD to actions to improve their own homes.
