After a couple of weeks in the blogging wilderness … I’m back! And I have a whole treasure trove of stuff to write about and explore with you.

I have just finished a project called Castlemaine 500. In a nutshell, it was a community behaviour change project that sought to assist 500 households to reduce their household energy consumption by 15 to 30%. Our approach was to work directly with people in workshops and in their homes, provide information and facilitate the develoment of energy action plans. We worked with partners such as builders and hardware stores and ran a capacity building/leadership program along the way.

There are lots of learnings to be shared and I’ll be doing my best to ‘make sense’ of the data, stories and evidence that we collected along the way. I hope that project participants, sponsors and other ‘behaviour change practitioners’ can find their way to these posts and make comments and add their own knowledge to what I start.

If you are interested, the full copy of the draft Castlemaine 500 report can be downloaded here …
