Going Green Together is very excited to announce the launch of our new project, supported by the National Lottery Community Fund and County Durham Community Foundation. As well as expanding the resources we’re currently offering through the Going Green Together website, we’re inviting VCSE organisations in the North East and Cumbria to join a special cohort to access training and courses in order to reduce their carbon footprint and learn how to make their working practises more environmentally conscious.
To celebrate the launch of this programme, and to let you know how to get involved, we’re hosting a range of online and in-person events in mid-July (find out about our other online events here).
This in-person launch event, held at VODA's new Spirit of North Tyneside venue in Wallsend, will include a presentation about Going Green Together, what we're doing and how to get involved. It will also include break-out activities to provide a taster for what to expect, and to learn more about your organisation's environmental needs, and a networking opportunity to meet other organisations in the region and discuss how you can collaborate together in sharing knowledge and strategies in tackling the climate crisis.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those who are looking to make their first steps towards environmental reform within their organisation, those who want to discover more, and for those who are already embedding environmental practise in their organisation but who are looking to collaborate with and help other organisations do the same.
