This project is being brought to life by an interdisciplinary team of experienced community facilitators, educators, energy experts and urban planners led by Carbon Coop.
Engagement and Pilots project lead (Carbon Coop)
I’m passionate about working towards creating fairer and more just societies. I love working with people, and working together to change things for the better. I love mountains, cycling and good food!
Engagement Officer (Carbon Coop)
I work with the local community groups and wider Oldham population
I love meeting new people and learning about their experiences, especially if tea and biscuits are involved!
Communications & Engagement Assistant (Carbon Coop)
I co-manage our social media pages, photography at workshops, help out with anything in the workshops and creating videos for the project and documentary.
I am very passionate about filmmaking, filming and editing. I love telling a story through film and I have been doing it since I was around 10 years old.
Project Manager (Carbon Coop)
My role involves a bit of everything, coordinating across the Oldham Energy Futures programme.
Anything outdoors or involving food I’m there for! At the weekend you’ll find me out in the mountains rock climbing, walking or cycling, often followed by a pub lunch.
Community programme & communications (Carbon Coop)
I co-develop the workshop programme, facilitate workshops in Westwood and co-ordinate all the different aspects of how we tell the story of the work in different channels, so articles, films, social media and also a podcast.
I love stories. I read a lot and also binge-watch TV series. I love to hear people’s stories, find ways for them to be shared and for people to write new narratives for their place or community.
Associate Principle (Urbed)
My role on the project is urban design consultant and workshop facilitator
I love helping create vibrant and sustainable places for people to live, work, learn and play. I believe that good neighbourhoods, towns and cities should offer everyone a high quality of life.
