Also in the line-up are Chris Hines from A Grain of Sand, an organisation dedicated to delivering positive change. He was founder and director of Surfers Against Sewage for 10 years, regularly advises government and appears on TV.

He will be joined by Paloma Hermoso FCIOB, project manager with Ward Williams, who holds accreditations as a retrofit coordinator, Passivhaus consultant and LCA practitioner.

Verel Rodrigues, a climate activist and environmental campaigner, completes the line up of speakers.

The day will include an immersive workshop using Lego bricks.
