Energy Saving Day (E-Day) 2009 : Isles of ScillyE-Day 2009 : Isles of Scilly (Tues 6 Oct, 2009)
Energy Saving Day (E-Day) 2009 will be staged on the Isles of Scilly, approximately 30 miles out to sea from the tip of Land's End, on Tuesday 6th October, 2009.
This island community achieved the biggest reduction in electricity demand measured anywhere in the UK during last year's E-Day (http://www.e-day.org.uk).
With the help of the local school, radio station, council, wildlife trust, transition town group and many others, E-Day 2009 aims to build on the success of last year's grassroots effort.
Isles of Scilly Earth Summit (Sat 3 - Sun 4 Oct, 2009)
During the build up to E-Day, the Isles of Scilly Earth Summit will be staged in the Town Hall of the Isles of Scilly's main island, St Mary's, between Saturday 3 October and Sunday 4 October.
At this event, international, UK and local islanders will describe how their islands are already feeling the impacts of climate change, as well as their hopes and fears for the future.
World class speakers have been confirmed from Papua New Guinea, Samoa, The Galapagos, Madagascar and others have been invited to speak about a variety of other fascinating, yet overlooked, islands.
