Buildings matter! To meet the challenges of climate change much of our current housing stock needs to be fitted with insulation and draught-proofing to help us reduce our energy needs and cut carbon emissions. The benefits to our health can also be huge.

Our Green Renovations short courses provide a chance to explore different approaches to renovation, get expert advice on your own projects, and gain hands-on experience working with natural building materials.
