The Greening Campaign Phase One

Engage your community

Have you ever felt powerless against climate change? Coming together as a community can bring real change at a local level and place power in the hands of individuals.

We will provide you with an Engaging your Community pack which includes all the information and guidance you will need to get you started. We also give you one-to-one support and share the experience we’ve gained over the years.

We start with making changes in your community with everybody taking on small challenges to reduce the impact on the environment. If all communities act, we will create a patchwork of greening towns and villages wherever we go.

We make these changes visible, fun, inclusive and meaningful. And we support you every step of the way!

The Greening Campaign is proud to work with anybody who is passionate about making a difference. You do not need experience or special knowledge, you just need to have the desire, energy and commitment to make real change. This is about anybody standing up to build a better future for their community.

But more than all the above,
we will help you to make it fun!

By starting with something simple, it allows everyone to take part whoever they are. It also means that people can take part even if they have no knowledge about climate change or energy reduction. You then have a great foundation of people if you choose to move to the next Phase.

We want you to succeed, and so we will support you the very best we can.

  • Available for support and advice
  • Provide you with a Specialist Information Pack
  • Guide you through the process
  • Online meetings with groups of other communities
  • Links to your Councils
  • Online videos you can use
  • One-to-one conversation with us if needed

TOP TIP – follow the pack and don’t try and cut corners.

“I wish we had followed the pack and included our community from the start, it would have saved so much time as we moved forward”


Follow the guidance on getting community groups involved – if you don’t do this it will be just a small group of you and you need everyone!
