Thinking differently about tackling the Climate Emergency
Have you ever thought about volunteering as a way of helping make west Cheshire greener and cleaner?
After Cheshire West and Chester Council declared a Climate Emergency last year, February has been dedicated Environmental Month as part of its Year of Volunteering campaign, in partnership with Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA).
There are often misconceptions about what volunteering actually means. It is not always simply giving up an hour or two of your time to help out in a charity shop as volunteering can come in many different shapes and sizes. People can find a role perfect for them that suits their own interests.
The environment is a subject close to a lot of people’s hearts so volunteering is a great way to make an impact. Some people volunteer their time at organisations that set out to tackle the issues contributing to the Climate Emergency, while others volunteer in their own time to improve the environment around them by doing things such as picking up litter whenever they see it in their local area.
It all helps create a greener and cleaner environment as west Cheshire aims to become carbon neutral by 2045.
Last month, the Year of Volunteering campaign focused on poverty action and highlighted a number of different volunteering success stories in this area.
