Latest from Going Green Together
What have we been up to since our last newsletter? Well, we’re glad you asked!
We’ve been able to share the work we’ve been doing by featuring in a variety of different newsletters including the Tees Valley Nature Partnership Spring Newsletter.
We hosted our monthly peer support session and had an interesting conversation around how we can engage beneficiaries to take climate action. In the session, we highlighted the importance of that framing these conversations in the right way, given the current energy crisis and people’s competing priorities.
Behind the scenes, we’ve been developing toolkits to support organisations by providing further information on different elements of climate action. They’re still in the development process at the moment, but keep your eyes peeled because we’ll be sharing them on our website, social media and newsletter once they’re ready!
We're recruiting!
Spread the green word
One of the most important things we can do to promote climate action is to talk about it! By sharing information, actions and experiences we can teach others and help them to understand how they can go green.
Find out how you can start engaging people with climate action on the Going Green Together website.
