Finding Solutions is as important as Campaigning. We have 2 teams from UWE Engineering Dept working on sustainable heating solutions for Van Dwellers and small workshops and garages.
Van Dwellers are a local symptom of the housing crisis, unable to afford to rent a home, more and more people are living in vans at the road side. Often the only heating is a rudimentary wood stove.
Small Garages and workshops often use diesel or paraffin space heaters.
Both projects will look for low cost, sustainable alternatives, and at the very least identify a roadmap to a solution.
