When we come together as a community we can achieve wonderful things. We are fighting to reduce the worst effects of the climate and nature emergency on our community and further afield, and adapt in the face of it.
We do this by education, action and collaboration.
Raising awareness across all sectors of our community – business, schools, individuals, councils
Pushing local and national government decision-makers to make the right choices & legislate FOR climate and nature, as well as acting locally to bolster biodiversity, plant trees & hedges, improve soil – all helping reduce floodwater risk
Actively bringing the community & local groups together, working with existing groups & partners, sharing ideas & projects
We need to expand our team, and we would love you to join!
(please note that all roles are voluntary)
URGENT: Email distributions to our membership base using our platform Sendinblue, including circulating monthly newsletter.
Approx 2 – 4 hours average / week. Possibility to extend role to additional admin tasks. Previous admin experience preferred.
Events Team Lead:
Our wonderful events team lead, Sara Kandiah has now stepped down from this role and we are looking to fill it. This would involve coordinating the Greener Henley events, including member meetings, decarbonisation workshops, schools network workshops, education talks. You will be working with project leads and their teams in relation to each event, so you will not be alone! Approx 4 hours average / week or more if desired!
We are also looking for more people to join up to our events team, so if you are keen to get involved in some events organising but don’t want to be coordinating the team, do still get in touch!
Tree Planting Team Lead:
We are looking to try to replace the irreplaceable Patrick Fleming, former Chair of Greener Henley, to head up the tree planting team. Patrick did an amazing job over the years in making sure thousands of trees and hedges were planted in and around Henley. Again, if you would like to join the team but you are not keen on leading the team, do still get in touch.
Community Outreach team members:
We are looking for more people to help Diana Barnett with community outreach. This involves helping with the various activities we provide for our local community, for example: Greener Henley’s Environmental Science Challenge, displays at the public library and supporting activities to make Greener Henley better known in the locality.
As we grow, we need to pay for more communications and project management support, not to mention a whole host of other costs associated with putting on an increasing number of events and talks. There are an increasing number of pots of money available for groups like us from councils, foundations and even private individuals, but we don’t currently have the capacity to apply for all that may be available to us. We are looking for a fundraiser who can assist with this, ideally with previous fundraising experience. Estimate approx 2 – 4 hours / week.
You can get in touch to express an interest in any of the above roles on [email protected].
If you would like to get involved with Greener Henley but none of the above fits the bill, do still contact us because we would love to have you involved!
