Here at Green Hampshire, we want to inspire and motivate volunteers to get involved and take part in the wonderful environmental and conservation projects that are going on all over our beautiful county of Hampshire.
A lot of people want to participate and it has always been our intention to make it easier for volunteers to help with environmental projects. Where can volunteers go to find out what’s going on? That’s where we step in.
Green Hampshire has been a great success and we know that people have been using it as a resource of information so they can get involved. We've got lots of ideas for how to progress the project further including...
- Exploring the feasibility of setting up an online volunteering sign-up and membership platform.
- Spreading the word about the activities and events Green Hampshire supports to more established companies across the county to gain further backing.
- Distinguish potential collaborations with similar voluntary organisations and local colleges, universities and councils across Hampshire to grow the number of volunteers who can use our resources.
- And many more exciting opportunities for us to register our interest in!
We list events from over one hundred environmental and conservation groups and organisations based in Hampshire. These range from groups of volunteers who look after a particular area to national and even international charities. The events we list cover a broad range of activities including vital conservation work, beach clean ups and litter picks; meetings to discuss environmental issues, film screenings and talks to learn more along with walks and guided tours are listed as well.
Our aim is to bring together a wide variety of different projects so that lots of people can be involved in looking after our beautiful county (and planet!)
We hope to hear from you whether you are an aspiring volunteer for your local community wanting to take action about the causes that you feel most passionate about or a group or organisation that is looking for more help with a project you’ve always had in mind, but never been able to take off the ground!
The best place to find out more information about us, inform of us of your interests in our movement or perhaps how we can form a collaboration to support one another would be at our up and coming ‘Meet Up’ scheduled for Earth Day - Wednesday 22nd April 2015 at Broadcasting House, 10 Havelock Road, Southampton SO14 7FY at 6.30pm. We will be discussing what we have achieved so far and where we want to be for the future!
In the meantime, why not have a look at our website www.greenhampshire.co.uk. You never know, there might be something going on that takes your interest and we might even be able to showcase some of these at our meet up on Wednesday 22nd April.
Twitter is also perfect for us and we have been delighted with the response our tweets get. Please follow us at @greenhampshire to keep up to date with all the latest voluntary opportunities and for ways you can make a real difference in our community in 2015! You can also contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can sign up for the meeting on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/858133570912375/ or simply turn up on the day.
We look forward to hearing from you or even better seeing you on the 22nd April 2015!
