The Big Green Challenge - and the next challenge
SusMo submitted an expression of interest for consideration for an award from the Big Green Challenge. This is a £1 million prize fund, designed to encourage and reward people working together to achieve a 60% reduction of CO2 emissions in their communities.See www.biggreenchallenge.org.uk
There were 352 submissions - sadly Susmo was not chosen to go through to the next stage. This caused a short, down moment but we move on to further action.
A new 'Green Neighbourhoods' programme has been launched. This community-based programme aims to help up to 100 selected neighbourhoods in England to reduce their carbon footprints by 60%.
SusMo will work with other Moseley and Birmingham organisations to gain green neighbourhood status.
