The Greensand Trust in partnership with Greensand Country is putting the "Green into Greensand" and looking for Greensand Champions - groups or individual young people who are doing something amazing for the Greensand Country environment. We’d love to hear what young people are doing and give them the recognition they deserve as our ‘Greensand Champions’.

Our aim is to celebrate positive environmental action, support the achievements of those young people doing great work and challenge ourselves and others to do more - together we can really make a difference and help improve our local environment.

What's makes a Greensand Champion?

A Greensand Champion could be, for example, someone who:

  • Offers ongoing support for a local environmental group or cause
  • Undertakes proactive habitat enhancement in the Greensand Country landscape area taking action against climate change
  • Understands, campaigns and shares information relating to the unique Greensand Country landscape and its vulnerability to climate change and other factors
