Yesterday was a busy and exciting day for TIG. Our energy and insulation staff, Alana Murray, Kirsty Macleod and Charlie Healey were invited to Stornoway Primary to host a workshop on the effects of climate change. We demonstrated how TIG’s work assists in the reduction of carbon emissions from households across the Western Isles.
Stornoway Primary pupils have recently been learning about pollution, the effects of climate change and the importance of energy efficiency. The workshop consisted of talks about renewables, fossil fuels, what causes climate change and what TIG contributes to improving energy efficiency in homes. The workshop was rounded off by a few interactive games to test what the pupils had learnt from the day.
Alana Murray commented: ‘We were delighted to be asked to attend Stornoway Primary and do this workshop. We had a lot of fun and the children were enthusiastic, answered our questions and thoroughly enjoyed the games. We hope we have helped with their education about climate change.’
TIG are always happy to visit schools and talk to children about energy efficiency in their own homes. It’s a great benefit to TIG and the children. Any schools who are interested in hosting an energy efficiency workshop can get in touch with the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 01851 706121.
