The One Planet Experience
The One Planet Experience tells the London 2012 sustainability story and the endeavours to create the greenest Olympic and Paralympic games ever. It has now been officially opened by Wallington's very own Paralympian gold medallist, David Weir and we hope you will visit.
Based at the pioneering BedZED eco-village in South London, the One Planet Experience is one of four government-funded projects that are using London 2012 to inspire sustainable living.
The One Planet Experience exhibition features interactive exhibits and displays, including:
- the carbon calculator house, where visitors can select different home improvements to calculate carbon and cost savings;
- the energy velodrome, where you can see how many household appliances you can power;
- touch screen quizzes and educational videos;
- personal advice from BioRegional's sustainability experts.
It is hoped that visitors will be inspired to take steps to save energy and reduce waste, for example by installing insulation and reducing food waste, and a range of information and materials to help you at home will be available. You can find out more and get a sneak preview at www.oneplanetexperience.net .
The exhibition opening times are:
Wednesday - Friday 11.00am to 1.00pm
2.00pm to 4.00pm
1st Wednesday of every month 4.00pm to 7.00pm
Entry is free so we hope to see you at this exciting new multimedia exhibition. Groups are welcome but must be arranged in advance by contacting Stephen Edwards (Community Education and Engagement Officer) on 020 8404 4896.
There will also be a number of special workshops and fun events over the next 12 months to provide practical information and tips from local sustainability experts on saving energy and reducing waste. The first of these will be on 7th December and details will be on www.oneplanetexperience.net shortly.
