Wyre Forest Green Alliance
United For A Better Future
Concerns about the climate crisis have led several Wyre Forest Organisations to join together in a Green Alliance.
As well as working with local authorities, the Alliance will enable local organisations to work together and support each other in running activities. The aim being to help individuals and communities to learn more about environmental issues and learn how better to respond with local action.
We are already feeling the effects of the climate emergency in the Wyre Forest area, with increased frequency of serious flooding and noticeable seasonal changes. Many of the organisations in the Alliance have been working together for many years on useful events such as The Greener Living Fair. Now is the time to step up our efforts to challenge councils and communities to address the threats to our planet and future generations as a matter of the greatest urgency.
Our first major WFGA event is a community arts project, “Art4PlanetEarth” - to raise awareness of COP26 , the Climate Emergency Summit that the UK Government is hosting in November.
For the future, the Alliance intends to run online workshops and discussion groups and hopefully, when the covid restrictions are lifted, a return to live events in local venues.
The Wyre Forest Green Alliance has been set up with financial help from The National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by Transition Network. Thanks to National Lottery players for making this possible.
