Isle Of Wight Residents Offered Funded Support To Tackle Climate Change

A new initiative which helps towns and villages tackle climate change is inviting communities across the Isle of Wight to sign up.

Island residents who want to make a positive difference and tackle climate change are invited to attend the free Greening Campaign online Information event in June to find out more about how the Lottery-funded campaign can support them.

The Greening Campaign has been awarded National Lottery funding to provide a team of experts to help 20 communities in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to tackle climate change.

Terena Plowright, founder of the Greening Campaign, said:

“When we opened the programme, we were looking to work with 20 communities and have been amazed at the interest and take-up from right across the county.

"Communities have really come together and are already achieving quite remarkable things.

"We have been able to extend the number of places available so I would ask anyone interested in taking part to get in touch as soon as possible.”

The Greening Campaign has teamed up with Hampshire County Council, the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, and the sustainable gardening charity Garden Organic, to bring a supported programme to residents in Hampshire.

These partners are working alongside the Greening Campaign and the communities, using their expertise to help residents come together and change behaviour in their community.
