Hi all,

I have been delivering talks to new mother's groups in our local government area for some time on how to ensure that energy use does not increase dramatically when new babies arrive; the talks focus on simple, cheap and practical ways to keep energy use down and as part of the service, we provide "Energy Smart Babies" kits, with fact sheets and other info, along with "Energy Smart Thermometers", to the mums free of charge. As there is a large number of continually renewing new mother's groups in the area, the talks have become very time intensive without having measurable outcomes in terms of greenhouse reduction/abatement. I'm now looking at ways to expand the outcomes of the project and would welcome suggestions, ideas, or examples of similar projects or research in Australia or internationally.
