This event is linked to the Museum of Bath at Work's exhibition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Bath Arts Workshop, especially Comtek (Community Technology), which was concerned with ecological issues, recycling, alternative technology and the future of sustainable living on a local level. 50 years later we have reached a point when we may have only 12 years to change direction to avert a climate crisis and many councils, including Bath & North East Somerset, have declared climate emergencies.

Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) and COMTEK are hosting this event to raise awareness of the history of alternative/renewable technology locally, to emphasise the importance of community energy today and in the future in responding to climate change and to encourage people to get involved with BWCE and its activities.

The event will be chaired by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge and Fully Charged) https://www.fullychargedshow.co.uk
