Group 03

Our group collaborates with the Manchester based organisation Carbon Co-op, an energy services and advocacy cooperative that helps people and communities to make radical reductions in home carbon emissions necessary to avoid climate change. They are people powered not fossil fuelled. Utilising community based social marketing, Carbon Co-op have us tasked us with creating a series of case studies that will showcase the innovators and early adopters, the vanguard of the retrofit movement, who have successfully retrofitted their homes. Displaying and distributing the achievable and beneficial investments they have made to their homes will encourage citizens to follow in their footsteps, advancing the wider retrofit movement. These case studies will be realised through student led interviews visiting the homes of Carbon Co-operators through a series of methods. To prepare for this we will be hosting a series of workshops to aid with listening, interviewing, and presentation skills. Furthermore, we will use the case production process as a way to share our software skills, teaching transferable skills and methods for making portfolios and showcasing work.
