Greening Steyning

 Together we can make a difference

 

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

Creating the community we want

Greening Steyning ran a community consultation process last summer to gather everyone’s ideas on what they want to future to look like. With the climate and ecological emergency staring us in the face, we need to take decisive action.  The question we posed was how can we make Steyning, Bramber and Upper Beeding one of the greenest and most sustainable communities in the UK?  The results are now in, and show there’s a strong consensus around the need for action.
