Our Members > Green Shropshire Xchange
Green Shropshire Xchange operates as a hub for all those concerned with a sustainable, environmentally friendly Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin.
We are a free membership organisation attracting groups, businesses and individuals from the two unitary authorities above united by this common goal. We do this by sharing best practice, show-casing our members’ projects and successes and providing information and advice. We organise talks and events around the area to stimulate greater environmental action.
GSX is a Forum Member on Shropshire Voluntary Community Sector Assembly for ‘the Community of the Environment’ and we have regular two- way exchanges on critical sustainability issues with Shropshire Council’s Chief Executive Officer.
During 2013 and again in 2015 we have procured funding to provide seed-corn grants for our members to fund new environmental initiatives. New projects have included waste reduction schemes, community energy advice to households, launch of a county-wide swift conservation group and setting up a community heating system.
We are currently working with Ludlow 21, a member in South Shropshire, to develop a 2016 Energy Week promoting visits to local renewable energy projects (hydro, solar and biomass) and providing seminars and drop-in sessions on home energy efficiency.
Our contact at Green Shropshire Xchange is Chairman, David Currant.
