What is the Green Champions Programme?
What is it? Delivering such radical change requires the help of as many passionate people as possible across a range of teams and backgrounds in Birmingham – we need the next generation of ‘Green Champions’. To aid this, we are hosting a series of monthly development workshops based on managing/facilitating change and increasing the confidence of participants to get their voices heard on green matters. Who is it for? In short, anyone! The Green Champions programme is open to absolutely everyone from any department and at any level of seniority, even those outside of the Council – it is so important that we hear and engage with people from all backgrounds no matter their job title or association. How will it be delivered? We will host a series of monthly workshops beginning in February and extending into Summer 2021, delivered virtually. After an initial ‘launch event’ participants will be split into mixed groups of around 8-10 people to explore concepts of individual leadership and change management principles in relation to championing green spaces. The time commitment will be approximately 2-3.5 hours once every 4 weeks between February and July.
