Working from home? With full fibre we could all enjoy a more flexible future...

Register your interest at cityfibre.com/your-street

Over these past weeks, many of us will have adopted entirely new ways of doing everyday activities, such as attending meetings, completing coursework, joining exercise classes and catching up with friends and family. Likewise, many of us will have realised that all these activities now have one thing in common: a digital screen.

This ‘new normal’ demonstrates exactly what we already suspected – digital technology has transformed our lives. And now, in these unprecedented times, we are utterly dependent on its ability to provide us with a socially-isolated gateway to normal life – work, the high street and entertainment, as well as the comforts of friendship and family we all need at times like these.

What’s all this I keep hearing about full fibre – what’s the big deal...?

Digital connectivity has become a hot button issue. Almost all major political parties have pushed it up their own agendas in the past year, recognising the importance of connectivity to the wider electorate.

Yet despite headline grabbing soundbites, few seem to fully grasp what full fibre connectivity actually means. Currently much of the UK is using a copper-based legacy network. Some of this network dates back to the Victorian era, so you can see that it is well overdue an upgrade. At present only around 12% of the country has access to full fibre networks. These networks differ from what most of the country currently has in that they use fibre optic cables to connect the exchange directly to each premises #gigabitAW (photo credit Adur and Worthing Council).

EYE announce their 1st Virtual Eco-Summit on the 2nd July, at 10:00

A message from The E.Y.E. Project (Eco, Young & Engaged) to all Eco-Leaners and Eco-warriors, aged 5 to 16 years.
EYE are proud to announce our 1st Virtual Eco-Summit on the 2nd July, at 10:00

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCykgyPeAoVRcGW8DnYQGA6g?view_as=subscriber

In these challenging times of social distancing, E.Y.E.’s scheduled large gathering of school learners at the 13th Worthing& Adur Eco-Summit on the 2nd of July has had to take on a different approach, seizing the opportunity to go virtual.

The Eco-Summit is viewed as a highlight to all school eco-committees across the Worthing & Adur area. Historically we invite participants through school eco-leads, hosting over 200 school pupils aged 5-16 from across the Worthing & Adur area. Coming together for a day of fun whilst learning about the preservation of our environment through eco themed workshops and activities. Emphasising the role young people have towards a more sustainable way of life. Empowering their green journey and future actions.

Not to disappoint schools and children that had already registered, we are able to offer this exciting and experimental Eco-Summit approach to our wider interest groups; including those currently learning from home.

E.Y.E. have selected from our network of nationally recognised environmentalist groups, a range of eco themed workshops. Supporting us at this event are; Sussex wildlife Trust, Sustrans, Marine Conservation Society, Sussex Green Living, Worthing Food Pioneers, Shoreham Port, South Downs National Park and Worthing Honey Collective.

Including a special opening message from Nicola Peel (Environmentalist campaigner) all the way from her lockdown in Los Cedros Biological Reserve- Andean cloud forest of the Choco region of Ecuador.

In these times of pausing and observing the wonders of our recovering environment, we hope you attended our event and take inspirational action. The imminent period of relaxing social restrictions and when the word lockdown is in the past, we would recommend that the ‘getting back to normal’ translates into eco actions for giving ourselves a ‘fresh start’ regarding everyone’s impact upon our one and only planet.

Celebrate our ongoing challenge to provide Eco-leaner as part of the mainstream curriculum, by participating in our 1st Virtual Eco-Summit, 2nd July 10:00.
