Established in 1973, the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) aim has always been to work with people and communities in an attempt to inspire, inform and enable us all to work together to make practical solutions for sustainability.

Our site consists of a graduate school, a visitor centre, interactive displays demonstrating a wide range of sustainable technology, and a delicious vegetarian café.

In addition to hosting our regular visitors and students, we also run a wide range of short course aimed at helping people develop useful skills, knowledge and ideas.
