Step Repair and Clearance in Ingestre Woods with Camden Green Gym

Posted by The Conservation Volunteers Camden on December 1, 2016

On Tuesday the 29th November, Camden Green Gym volunteers came together in the sunshine to practice their carpentry skills by repairing the broken steps in Ingestre Woods. A number of panels on the stairs were in dire need of repair having been subject to the seasons and ware and tear. There's lots left to do so we will be ... Continue reading »

Free solar for your community building?

I'm work for climate change charity 10:10. We make practical and positive projects happen to tackle climate change. We're currently looking to invite people to be part of a special project we're racing to get off the ground.Here's the short version: we’re going to ask people all around the country and the world to crowdfund to put free solar panels on your building.Yup, that's right. Solar panels, on your building. For free.Why?!Well, here's the long version. Last year Prince (as in, Prince) sadly left us. In the wake of his death we discovered that he'd been an undercover philanthropist, funneling money to important causes.One of those causes was clean energy - turns out he was secretly paying for people in Oakland, California, to have free solar panels installed on their homes.So this year, to celebrate his life, we will invite Prince's fan base worldwide to honour and extend that legacy by funding free solar panel installations for organisations working on the other causes Prince held dear.From our research we know he supported the following causes Performing arts centres/schoolsPoverty alleviationSexual health clinicsGender rights & issuesCoding for kidsUrban farmsRacial justiceDisability charities Animal welfareMigrant rights and human rightsBy joining in you could get free, clean electricity straight from the sun - meaning more money to spend on your work - and exposure through our campaign comms. And together we'll bring people together to fight climate change and strengthen your work.What's the catch?Well, there really isn't one. There's no cost to you for this, except for a bit of your time. And how much time you put in is up to you. If it all sounds too much then no problem - it's not for you this time round.Interested?Email Max, my colleague who is leading on this work at [email protected] or call the office on 0207 388 6688 and ask to have a chat with him.Time is of the essence (we plan to go live on the anniversary of Prince's death, 21st April) - but we've got a solar installation partner onboard that's raring to go. And we've done this kind of thing before - so we know how it works.So, now all we need is you!If you'd like to explore being involved, or you're just intrigued to know more - let me Max know and he can arrange to set up a very short call to put some meat on the bone.
