Green Future Associates CIC provides practical consultancy and project management for environmental projects – established in 2016.
We have made steady progress with a range of clients from the National Lottery to a local allotment association: most of our work since 2021 has been focused on supporting and coordinating the pioneering Urban Agriculture Consortium.
- We aim to provide practical routes to a more sustainable future.
- We also develop and deliver collaborative projects.
The Urban Agriculture Consortium supports place-based food partnerships, local authorities & communities to upscale nature friendly urban farming and food growing as part of an integrated, resilient, and just food system. We are working to support regenearive agroecology in response to climate and health emergencies, Brexit and food insecurity. We have been working with a range of partners & pathfinder places since autumn 2020. Our innovative on-line Policy Influencers Network Group (PING) brings stakeholders together in a supportive forum where we can explore new ideas and good practice together “a breath of fresh air”. Great progress in being made as people and communities grasp the opportunites for regenerative urban agroecology in response to the climate emergency. https://www.urbanagriculture.org.uk/ and see next page.
We are also working on an oral history project of the green movement since 1980 and developing links with The British Library and others.
Green Future? We are in the middle of a perfect storm of emergencies: climate, biodiversity, obesity, food insecurity, invasion and ongoing concerns over Covid-19. Things are tough right now, but we must use this crisis to make long-term adjustments to our lifestyles and be more sustainable and locally minded, including growing more food in urban areas. For now it is important that we all stay safe.
