Oxygen website and toolkits launched at SEACS energy conference in Exeter
A pioneering, cross-Channel energy project held its first conference at Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter on Friday 27 March 2014. And Oxygen was there to showcase the new SEACS website and educational learning resources/toolkits we have designed.
The SEACS (Sustainable Energy Across the Common Space) project, which stands for “Tackling The Energy Change Together”, brings together three UK local authorities of Devon County Council, Dorset County Council and Wiltshire Council, along with two French local authorities in Brittany, Conseil Général des Côtes d’Armor and Lannion-Trégor Agglomération.
The project aims SEACS to empower and inspire people on each side of the English Channel to actively reduce their energy consumption, and is actively engaging school children with lesson plans and toolkits.
The event was a chance to launch the new SEACS interactive website which is a dual language tool to educate and encourage adoption of energy-saving techniques. Oxygen developed the highly interactive website, which features an engaging animated home page, as well as designing a suite of learning resources and toolkits to help SEACS teach key stage 3 and 4 students about energy initiatives to tackle climate change. Oxygen was appointed to the Devon County Council framework for design and web design in 2013.
Steve Lodge from Oxygen said: “The conference was extremely popular with delegates from both sides of the channel. The website was made available by big screen, and since it is highly interactive was a popular addition to the event. We have also designed a range of classroom toolkits and resources to help SEACS promote their green initiatives.”
