The event is one of a series across Wales and has been organised specifically for officers within local authorities in Wales (particularly those with expertise in economic development, planning, community development and environmental issues), along with civil society groups and the third sector, as a means of furthering understanding and knowledge of the community energy sector, and how it will be possible to cooperate in future to ensure local ownership of resources and renewable energy developments.

“Writing about Climate Change” – a weekend residential writing course at Ty Newydd, Criccieth, North Wales. Awel Aman Tawe co-founder Emily Hinshelwood will be running a course this spring with writer David Thorpe on how to write about Climate Change.
Fri 23 Mar – Sun 25 Mar 2018
Course Fee / From £220 – £295 per person
http://www.tynewydd.wales/course/writing-climate-change/

On this course we will experiment with a variety of different approaches to writing about climate change. We will investigate ways of tapping our emotional reactions, of using research, imagining possible scenarios, and generating meaningful stories. How do we expose and write about that often hidden connection between our profligate use of fossil fuels and the loss of habitat, life and lifestyle that many in the world are already experiencing? Whether you are a poet, a fiction writer or prefer factual writing we will discuss the many facets of climate change and the ways in which its impact is felt both by participants on this course and people throughout the world.
