Greening Oliver's Battery

Last Thursday I attended the inaugural meeting of a group of individuals who were interested in setting up a "Greening Oliver's Battery" campaign. This would be a local community initiative as part of the wider "Greening Campaign" which aims to "Green the country, community by community".

The Greening Campaign was set up in response to the threat of global warming. It is an innovative idea to help motivate people to reduce their energy consumption and therefore lower their personal and community carbon footprint. In a nutshell it's about informing people of ways in which they can cut their own CO2 emissions, involving them in the process and measuring the results.

We were fortunate to have Terena Plowright, former manager of the Sustainability Centre in East Meon along to talk to us. Terena is the founder of the Greening Campaign and was able to tell us about successful campaigns being run in other communities.

I think this is an interesting, exciting and useful project for Oliver's Battery and I look forward to being involved with it as it moves forward. There will be a further meeting, with wider participation, on Thursday 13th March, so watch out for more news about Greening Ollie B.
