21st Century Thame has launched it’s Thame Green Street Champions project (August 2023).
We see it creating widespread behavioural change in Thame’s residents to support local sustainability and biodiversity.
Our plans for this project so far are:
🌿find enthusiastic residents on every street in Thame who are happy to share tips and ideas with their peers (we’ve already done this successfully with our Hedgehog Highways project which has 100+ Hedgehog Champions)
🌿 regularly update them via email (this may change to a WhatsApp Thread/Facebook Group depending on the preferences of the group) with ideas and resources to share with their neighbours
🌿co-ordinate events to foster a sense of community amongst the champions and also to increase their education and awareness on various green topics
🌿work with the champions to share seasonal campaigns related to sustainability and bio-diversity throughout the year e.g. tree planting, building bird houses, no mow may, growing your own food and other projects such as waste reduction and clean air initiatives.
This is a great project to support if you want to…
🌿support sustainability & bio-diversity in Thame
🌿be a part of another ground-breaking new project that’s tackling the issue of climate change using the power of networks
We believe that the street champion approach is absolutely crucial to combat climate change as it’s based on real human connection, relationships and peers influencing each other for the better.
Come and join us on this exciting journey!
As of mid-August 2023 the projects that will the champions will be asked to join in with are :
- Prescription blister pack recycling
- Home and Community Energy Expo (October 2023)
- Thermal imaging homes to reduce energy waste (November to January)
Street champions are invited to communicate campaigns out to their neighbours, share products, arrange how their neighbours can be involved, encouraged, invited. No-one is asked to do anything they don’t volunteer for.
