Welcome to our low carbon impact website
A SPACE FOR YOU
Expert By Experience is a volunteer-led multi-media platform that aims to create dialogue around mental health in South Asian communities through an intersectional and critical lens.
Mental health does not exist in a vacuum and our aim is to contextualise mental health in relation to sexual orientation, gender, caste, and patriarchy (to name a few). These are the added layers to our everyday experiences.
The range of experiences within the South Asian diaspora is vast and beautiful - though it is often weaponised as a form of oppression.
Inspired by the beautiful present and historic work by South Asian activists, the aim of Expert By Experience is to provide a platform for voices within the South Asian diaspora.
It is only through helping others find a voice that will we do justice to ourselves as a cause for good.
Why have we made our website low impact?
The internet is quite damaging to the environment. Every time someone makes a visit to a website it generates a data transfer which requires electricity. Electricity ultimately creates carbon emissions - all of which negatively impacts the climate.
Our new low impact website aims to reduce the data transfers by up to 72% in comparison to our old website.
We will continue to improve our website so that it is as low emission as possible.
New website carbon emission per click: 0.48g
Old website carbon emission per click: 1.72g
