Michael Mobbs Event

The air was crisp, the mood was chilled and the red wine warmed us all up on the night Michael Mobbs, author of Sustainable House, visited Shearer’s Bookshop.

We wanted to somehow support World Environment Day at Shearer’s and thought that nobody could help us do it better than sustainability expert, Michael Mobbs. Almost 13 years after the first edition of Sustainable House came out, the 2nd edition highlights some of the problems, the successes and the practical aspects of the original project, which saw Michael and his family converting their inner city terrace into a sustainable and environmentally-friendly living space.

Michael talked extensively of the experience and was extremely generous with practical advice. Given that he now holds his own tour of the house and is a consultant on the subject, we were extremely fortunate to have him talk to us.

He also touched on some of the work that he is now doing with his local council to reclaim the streets, which was exceptionally inspiring. We wish him all the best.
