Residents keen on a practical way to lower their household carbon emissions are invited to a couple of workshops which kick off next week. The Shire of Augusta-Margaret River and software provider Climate Clever will host workshops at the Augusta Library on Tuesday and Margaret River on Wednesday and Thursday. Attendees will learn how to use the online platform or mobile app options to track household carbon emissions, consumption levels and the cost for their water, power and waste. The workshops are part of the Shire’s Climate Action Plan which has a net zero emissions target for the local government of 2030 and an undertaking to help residents do the same. “Climate Clever is a free software platform that can help everyone in the shire of Augusta-Margaret River to save money and the planet,” Shire sustainability officer Katie Biggs said. “The software can help us to show that many small individual actions can collectively make a big change.” Shire sustainable development and infrastructure director Nick Logan said residents could achieve tangible savings using the Climate Clever app. “Climate Clever tracks what you do, then helps you to find easy ways to make a positive difference,” he said. “And it can even save you money, which is always a bonus.” All data from users would be provided to the Shire anonymously, helping the local government track community emissions-reduction targets. The data would also identify the most helpful changes introduced by households to reduce emissions. To sign up for Climate Clever visit www.climateclever.org/homes.
