Become Green Together – last chance for organisations to apply!

Last chance for environmental support through Become Green Together

Local voluntary and community organisations are invited to apply to Become Green Together: a programme designed to give you practical, accessible guidance on how to make your workplace environmentally sustainable.

It’s vital that the VCSE sector becomes more environmentally sustainable, to meet our responsibility to support and protect disadvantaged communities who will face the worst impacts of climate change, and to make the future greener and fairer for young people. Embedding environmental sustainability in your organisation also helps you meet the requirements of funders, prepare for changing legislation, and create new opportunities to support your core work.

Become Green Together will help you build an environmental strategy which works for you. You’ll be able to understand your environmental impact with a carbon footprint calculator, and demonstrate your progress to stakeholders with accreditation through the nationally recognised Investors in the Environment framework.

September is the last month to apply. Find out more and sign up through the Going Green Together website, and find out how training bursaries can support you through the programme on VONNE’s blog. Contact the project coordinator Nathaniel Spain at

If your organisation is taking action to reduce carbon emissions, tell us about it so we can feature it in the news or features sections.

Use the Zero Carbon Cumbria Doing our bit! logo to show that your actions are part of the wider effort to reach net zero in the county.
