SSDC Environment Champion

The aim of the Environment Champion Scheme is to improve the area in which they live by being the eyes and ears of the community and by promoting a clean, green and safe local area, encouraging pride and respect amongst residents for local streets and public places.

Environmental Champions are volunteers whose role will:

  • Be the recipient of any environment/climate information South Somerset District Council (SSDC) wishes to share with parishes, through emails and attendance at forums.
  • Compile and return any information on their parish which would be useful for SSDC to know (environment groups, electric vehicle charging points, re-wilded areas, etc)
  • Encouraging on specific green measures in the parish, to enable environmental sustainability to be at the core of the parishes' decision making.
  • Collaborating with surrounding parishes/groups to maximise impact and share expertise.

    Environmental Champions are absolutely vital to the success of the District and County strategies when talking about engaging communities and creating resilient ecosystems. They act as the 'eyes and ears' in their local area as well as acting as a conduit for materials and initiatives.

    There are no limits to the number of Environmental Champions that can sign up.

    Please contact — ssdcenvironment@southsomerset.gov.uk to register your interest.
