Tom Brown will outline the methods used by Green Light Trust to have such lasting effects on the lives of the people they support. During the talk, you will hear from the people the trust supports and learn about its novel approach to measuring its impact.
Green Light Trust is an environmental and educational organisation with its head office in Suffolk, covering East Anglia. The trust’s strapline is ‘Building, health, hope and happiness through the power of nature’ which describes the impact they have on the people they support. The broader vision of the trust is that everyone in society should have equitable access to the power of nature. To achieve this they work exclusively with those who are marginalised, disadvantaged and generally have the least access to nature in their lives. This work is truly transformative to the lives of the 2,000 plus people they support each year.
In this event, Green Light Trust's CEO will talk about the interesting development of the trust, its groundbreaking work with The University of Essex to demonstrate its impact through financial benefits to society and how this work can bring a demonstrable value to the woodlands in which they work.
This event has been organised by the East of England committee.
You will receive joining instructions for this event at 10.00am the day after making your booking, or 30 minutes prior to the event if you book on the day.
