Green Light Trust

Description

Green Light Trust is an environmental charity based in the village of Lawshall near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk that works across the East of England. We enable people, communities and organisations to develop themselves and learn about their relationship with nature to create sustainable lives and a future that protects our planet. We do this by:

  • Providing inspirational learning opportunities for individuals and community groups. Our specially designed programmes enable people to cope better with the challenges they face from mental health conditions, physical disability, unemployment and a lack of personal confidence and ambition.
  • Working with people and communities to restore and protect their natural environment. We inspire and support people in urban and rural communities to find and enhance sites which they can use and enjoy to enrich their lives.
  • Training Forest School Leaders to help children learn outdoors to understand nature and how we live in harmony with it.
  • Providing services to businesses enabling them to understand benefit and profit from social, environmental and financial thinking.
  • Maintaining an on-going relationship with people living in 2,000 square miles of a threatened rainforest in Papua New Guinea.
