Greensand Champions

Greensand Country, in partnership with The Greensand Trust, runs an annual Greensand Champions scheme. These are groups or individual young people who are doing something amazing for the Greensand Country environment.

What’s makes a Greensand Champion?

“Greensand Champions are young people who, on their own or as part of a group, are doing amazing things for the Greensand Country Environment. They are inspiring and enthusiastic young people with a passion for positive environmental change and we’d like to share and celebrate their actions with you!”

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

  • Offers ongoing support for a local environmental group or cause.
  • Enhances habitats within Greensand Country.
  • Understands, campaigns and shares information relating to the local impact of climate change.
