Seven green wonders of the public service world

October 7, 2010 at 4:51 pm 1 comment

Earlier this year, we set out to find innovation projects from the community and voluntary sector with the potential to green public services. We went on a search for public service innovations that are reducing carbon emissions or building society’s capacity to reduce carbon emissions. What we found confirmed our hunch – that many of the green public services of tomorrow are already here. 

We are excited to announce that seven projects have been selected to participate in our Green Next Practice programme.  We will help them to build the strategy, organisation and relationships they will need to develop and grow their work and to green public services. The projects are working with a range of public services from health to waste  to prison services. You can find presentations and videos from each project here.

“The projects are inspiring examples of the sector at its best and I wish them every success.” Nick Hurd MP

We’ve just published our new Green Next Practice programme brochure and you can find the online version here. The brochure provides summaries of the projects’ work, challenges, future plans and their contact details. If you have any questions or enquiries, please email Raj Cheema or telephone her on 020 7250 8097.

The Green Next Practice programme is delivered through our Innovation Exchange capability. Through Innovation Exchange we provide brokerage support to innovators from the community and voluntary sector by connecting them to commissioners of public services, social investors and support providers. Find out more at our website.
