Why We Do It

about_whyThe idea for the Green Centre evolved from The Green Workshop, a mobile teaching unit offering environmental education throughout Sussex. The Green Workshop appeared on the streets of Brighton and Hove, at farmers' markets, at fairs and festivals throughout the county (BBC Spring Watch, Beach Dreams, Brighton Pride, Climate Change Rally, Brighton Science Festival, etc.) and at schools and businesses from 2006 to 2009.

During this time, several themes emerged from the local community:

  • A desire to gain a greater understanding of issues relating to global warming and climate change
  • A willingness to participate in activities which tackle global warming and climate change.
  • Greater awareness of existing reduce/reuse/recycle opportunities
  • A chance to explore creative and inclusive projects in order to engage with a wider audience

The Green Workshop addressed some of these issues however there were limited opportunities for a small mobile unit. In order to develop the partnerships created by The Green Workshop and demand from the local community, we opened the Green Centre at 39 Manor Hill in East Brighton.
