ECCI’s first direct marketing appeal will hit the doormats of around 12,000 University of Edinburgh alumni this morning.
In collaboration with the university’s Alumni & Development Office, ECCI is seeking donations and support from ex-students and friends of the University, as well as bolstering our ever growing community of contributors, collaborators and members of the ‘hub’.
How can I donate?
The appeal invites potential donours to help ECCI ‘solve a global problem’:
A huge reliance on fossil fuels
An ever growing population – 7 billion and counting
A 75% rise in energy demand forcast by 2030
And details the ways that the Centre will overcome this enormous challenge:
By bringing together governments, businesses, communities and academics together and by taking risks on good ideas
We can only create a low carbon future with the right people, ideas, vision, technology and resources to make it happen
- People: To bring about change, culture and behaviour are as important as new technologies.
- Ideas: We don’t lack ideas, what we lack is delivery (accepting many will not work).
- Technologies: Information and material technologies are advancing radically, but this isn’t yet reflected in products and services.
As well as detailing what difference donations will make:
5 gifts of £1000
Will fund a growing business innovation award. One of the activities helping ECCI create a £167m boost to the global low carbon economy over 10 years.
5 gifts of £500
Will provide the space and place for industry, government and communities to come together. Helping ECCI deliver effective solutions to complex problems.
5 gifts of £100
Will allow prospective students access to our online CPD courses. Helping ECCI to build capacity and create the low carbon leaders and innovators of the future.
