Future Brighton Eco Open Houses events

We are looking for funding for future events but don’t have a Brighton & Hove event planned currently.

We are always looking out for houses or buildings to showcase in the event, built or renovated to a high standard of environmental performance.
If you would like to be involved in any future events, either opening your house or building, or as a volunteer, please contact us.


Eco Open Houses


Worthing Eco Open Houses 2018 – April 21st-22nd

Transition Town Worthing presents their fourth Eco Open Houses event for Worthing and Lancing, and this year including Shoreham, on Saturday and Sunday, 21-22 April 2018, kindly sponsored by Operation Watershed, Henry House and Worthing Homes. Go to our website for more information.

This event is all about sharing ways in which you can save money, learn more sustainable ways to to live and help our local towns become more resilient. The properties open to the public have transformed homes and businesses using all manner of water, energy and waste initiatives, from simple free to install measures, to high tech, high innovation - all of which have helped save money and the environment.

This year the focus will be on surface water flood prevention and water (including a workshop on how to build a rain garden), plus how to save energy and what we do with our waste. Entry to everything is free of charge - please click on this link to download a copy of the event brochure.

 

What is Eco Open Houses?

Whether you are a home owner or tenant wanting to find out what you can do in your home to save money and feel healthier and warmer, a builder looking for better ways to build for your clients or just simply curious, come and be inspired by visiting an eco-home near you!

Some Eco Open Houses are old houses that have been retrofitted and improved, some have just been built. What they feature in common is being cheaper to run and requiring less mains energy to keep them warm.

It doesn't necessarily take expensive renovation to cut bills: behaviour changes and small alterations can make a big difference. Discover practical steps to reduce energy use, water use and carbon emissions in our own homes from the experiences of Eco Open Householders. Funding options to help you renovate your home are described in Ways to pay.

You may be interested in finding out more about what you could do to your house. Have a look at the Eco Renovate Your Home course and some of the possible funding options outlined in Links.
