SUPPORT AND ADVICE

This section offers advice and ideas for local councils, voluntary groups, social and sports clubs, and small businesses on delivering initiatives and positive change within our communities.

When people come together locally, it helps people to connect with each other and their surroundings. It helps us to feel part of something, and a sense of belonging and pride towards our communities and landscapes.


This can promote environmentally- and socially-responsible habits, and spur real improvements that work on the ground, from social enterprises selling local produce, to better walking and cycling paths and public transport.


But it can be hard knowing where to start, overcoming barriers, and managing competing priorities. The pandemic has brought many challenges and much suffering, but it has also made us all reassess: could this be an ideal time to embed sustainability and inclusion in your activities, and help to ‘build back better and greener’ from Covid-19?
