The Green Communities project aims to bring people and nature together, for the benefit of the environment and communities; enabling communities to transform their local area into a more desirable place to live, work and play; increase opportunities to volunteer locally outdoors while also creating opportunities for wildlife to flourish.
The Green Communities project is supported by the Welsh Government’s Enabling Natural Resources and Wellbeing fund. This means that projects and initiatives are required to integrate the principles of Sustainable Management of Natural Resources (SMNR) into activities and community infrastructure.
The Green Communities project will be offering up to £30,000 to 30 rural communities within Denbighshire, Conwy, Flintshire and Wrexham to participate in the project, which will be selected through an open call process.
There is no closing date for applications, the programme will be open and running until the fund has been allocated.
If you are a community with an idea for a project within the eligible counties, the first step is to declare your interest by filling in the Expression of Interest form. Please return this form to Cara Roberts, Project Support Officer by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
