Eco Birmingham are a charity that help people local to Birmingham to take positive local environmental action:
“We give the people of Birmingham the tools to take positive environmental action and help others do the same. We deliver grass roots activities, events and programmes that engage, educate and stimulate communities and volunteers; supporting, advising, challenging and training organisations and influencing wider social change through dissemination, partnerships, research and internships.”
I’m particularly interested in the project ‘Secret Birmingham’
“Secret Birmingham is a self-guided digital cycling tour of heritage sites across South Birmingham using bike-friendly routes through some of the city’s most beautiful and interesting green spaces. We have developed these routes with theatre company C&T, you can also access great video content to learn more about the fantastic heritage sites along the way.”
By using and promoting cycling as a social activity, Eco Birmingham is combining education, with exercise, community and reducing carbon emissions. That’s why I think they are an interesting organisation!
