Where did the Greening Campaign start
In 2008, Terena (the founder of the Greening Campaign) realised that only ‘green’ people visited ‘green’ centres or read ‘green’ magazines and she felt that this meant most of the time people with climate change expertise were preaching to the converted. She also realised that the whole Climate issue was overwhelming people, and more than this, no-one could tell whether anyone else was taking action, resulting in the attitude ‘why should I change my lifestyle when everyone else is carrying on the same’.
A successful tool for communities
We are now recognised as a successful tool for communities to use to engage residents in a wide range of sustainable actions and activities to make the community more resilient – we even got asked to speak at the Houses of Parliament so MP’s could learn what we do!
As each community has taken part, we have learnt what works, and what complicates things. Thus, the Packs have all the great ideas ready for you to learn from, they have all your fun and intriguing suggestions included (some slightly mad, others absolutely hilarious).
