As part of Cleaner Greener Hounslow we have launched a community volunteering opportunity to get residents from all parts of the borough to join us in making Hounslow a cleaner and greener place to live. We want to empower our communities to make a difference by developing a volunteering network bringing everyone together to tackle environmental priorities.
There are plenty of opportunities for an Environmental Champion to get involved and improve their local community. Some of the activities we suggest (but are definitely not limited to) are:
Help wildlife flourish – Identify sites for wildflower planting and rethink your own back garden to be wildlife friendly
Plant and care for trees – Adopt a street tree or help plant trees in your neighbourhood
Organise community events – Organise a play street, a street party, or a community clean up
Beautify your street – Get together with your neighbours to ensure your street looks its best
The Environmental Champions Programme is very open and we’d like people to come up with their own actions, organise their own events, get involved in local issues and plan actions themselves but we will also be offering opportunities and actions to get involved in and hopefully there’ll be something that suits everyone.
If you’re interested you can find more information and sign up on the Hounslow Council website Environmental Champions page you will find here.
