We are creating significant change in the quality of our urban and rural environment. Local spaces are being transformed to provide vital havens for wildlife as well as vital services that help protect communities from climate change. We are improving local infrastructure and helping nature’s recovery.
We are empowering young people to make a positive contribution to their communities through shaping and delivering their own projects which improve the areas around them. We are investing in opportunities for them to gain skills, experience and employment to develop themselves as environmental leaders.
We are inspiring people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to come together and contribute to a wide range of activities with positive and long lasting impact. Successful local community enterprises are being established up and down the UK and local people are gaining a wealth of benefits from improved local places.
Using our best practice programme model, we are demonstrating the opportunities and benefits presented by a resource efficient and sustainable ‘green’ economy. In doing so, we aim to change how we invest in our society and make the green economy the favoured employment and education route for young people.
