A Present Tense Lecture by Mukti K. Mitchell on Sunday 7th October 2012 and soon on our YouTube channel.
“What it was like sailing around Britain in a 15ft boat; how low carbon living improves your quality of life; and why insulation saves money and the planet, as well as making you cosy.”
Mukti will share how he came to design and build a zero-emission microyacht and sail around Britain, endorsed by the Prince of Wales and the Prime Minister. He will describe how eco-living choices improved his quality of life. And he will explain how to save energy in old houses, and cut the national carbon footprint.
Mukti is director of CosyHome Company and lives by the sea in North Devon. He attended the Small School, an alternative secondary school with 35 pupils. He is author of The Guide to Low Carbon Lifestyles, five on-line carbon calculators and articles in numerous magazines from Architectural Design to Resurgence. He has crewed sailing boats across the Atlantic and hitch-hiked across South America.
