Speakers at the launch
A bit about Oliver:
Brighton-based eco designer Oliver Heath has always striven to raise awareness of sustainability and recycling, from his early BBC1 Changing Rooms Enterprise years through to his writing for Friends of the Earth magazine and his weekly column in the Observer.
He runs his eco design company Heath design â€“ as well as EcoCentric â€“ an online store that specialises in beautifully designed sustainable products for the home.
Oliver has, of course, signed up to the 10:10 Campaign.
A bit about James:
James inspired the creation of the citywide Brighton and Hove 10:10 campaign and is director of The Low Carbon â€“ a Hove based social enterprise which works nationally to build low carbon communities through local action to cut CO2 and promote sustainability.
In 2009 he advised on, and supported the growth of the national 10:10 campaign as Partnerships Director working with media partners The Guardian, as well as with key campaign delivery partners EDF, e.on, British Gas and Scottish and Southern Energy. He sees 10:10 as a unique opportunity to create local partnerships that deliver lasting action on climate change.
The event gives a chance to hear from Oliver Heath and James Grugeon, who will talk about the campaign and what it means to business in Brighton and Hove.
