TIME2GROW - Environmental Awareness Toolkit
Time Banking Wales in partnership with Creation Development Trust and Valleys Kids received funding from the Countryside Council for Wales to test an Environmental Awareness Toolkit, throughout 2010 to 2011.
Building on the successful foundations laid down in preliminary work undertaken by a regional partnership between Valleys Kids and the Creation Development Trust testing the efficacy of an environmental time banking strategy using green time currency. The aim was to increase awareness of environmental, green, sustainability and biodiversity issues promoting involvement in the environment for recreation and health benefits both for the individual and for community benefit. A successful small-scale pilot project was supported by the Countryside Council for Wales in 2009 to 2010.
Time2Grow was extended for a further year, in order to evaluate and evidence participants’ environmental journeys, consolidating environmental time banking principles that were already well established. Culminating in the production of a comprehensive evidenced based report produced by Time Banking Wales, reflecting on how a time bank approach can impact positively on community engagement in the environment and reflect social, health and wellbeing outcomes.
