Would you like support to green your voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation?
Together for our Planet is for all Hampshire VCSE organisations to come together and support each other to make steps towards a greener world. This could be reducing your organisation’s energy consumption, exploring the world of reuse and recycling, increasing local biodiversity or raising awareness in your local community. We can all take small steps where we are, that add up to a big difference – let’s come Together for our Planet! For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the webpage
Together for our planet is a project delivered by the Community Infrastructure Partnership, a collaboration between seven Councils for Voluntary Service in Hampshire. This project is generously funded through the National Lottery’s Together for our Planet scheme.
Online launch event: Wednesday 21st September 10.30-12 midday
An opportunity to hear from other voluntary organisations who are on the greening journey. Be inspired, get ideas, and meet other organisations to see how we could all help green the Hampshire VCSE sector! You’ll hear about resources to help you delve deeper and about how you can get support to make positive changes for the planet where you are. Click this link to register for the free launch event
Join one of more of the Together for our Planet peer support groups; digging deeper together into specific areas where we can change our organisations’ environmental impact – premises, projects and processes. You’ll explore together the changes you’d like to make, any barriers and share solutions. Come along to one or all the events.
Greening our premises Wednesday 5th Oct & Wednesday 2nd Nov, 1-2.30pm
This strand is for organisations who have some premises that they use. It will cover aspects such as reducing energy consumption (and saving money!), making use of any outside space. Maybe you could put your premises to work for the planet – solar panels, biodiversity, as a recycling hub! Click the link to register for the free Greening our Premises session: Wednesday 5 Oct or Wednesday 2 Nov
Greening our projects – Wednesday 12th Oct & Wednesday 9th Nov, 10.30-12 midday
This is about thinking through how you can make existing and new projects more environmentally friendly. Perhaps you want to adapt a project to reduce climate impact, or maybe you’d like to consider starting a project which has a positive environmental impact – such as a community food growing project, an awareness campaign, a tree planting project, or setting up a re-use hub. Or perhaps you want to help encourage active travel in your local area or help your clients reduce their energy use.

Greening our processes – Friday 21st Oct & Friday 18th Nov, 9.30-11am

Celebration event – Wed 30th Nov, 10-11.30am
