Sustainability Map of Worthing Online Event

Having done a soft launch of our Sustainable Worthing Map for New Year, we are now contacting all the organisations involved to check entries and to invite them to join us for our next free mapping event (kindly organised by SECA) on Thurs 9th Feb at 6.30pm, details of which can be found here:
https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/seca-knowledge-sharing-oneplanet-technology-in-action-tickets-503447002537

You are all most welcome to sign up for this if you’d like to find out more about the map, how to use it and how to create your own map. As it’s an online (Zoom) event, we have more flexibility with numbers so do join us if you wish.

Our Sustainable Worthing Map Is Now Live!

After many months of gathering and inputting information, our map is finally live here:
https://oneplanet.com/published/resource-map/plans/transition-town-worthing

If you scroll down and go to “download PDF” you will see, under the 10 principles, what we have included so far to help you take action.

If you go to the resource map:
https://oneplanet.com/published/Plan/plans/transition-town-worthing/mindmap and wait a minute for it to load, then you can click on any of the icons on the map and it will take you directly to information about that resource as well as contact details, website etc. so that you can find out more and maybe support that initiative in whatever way you can.

It’s been created (thanks to funding from www.tnlcommunityfund.org.uk and the expertise of https://oneplanet.com) to signpost what’s already going on locally and we hope that this will enable people to support our community in countless ways and there’s no better time than now to find out how you can do just that.

Please explore it and maybe base your New Year’s Resolutions on what you find. It’s a call to action, to support local businesses and organisations that are doing what they can to reduce their own carbon footprint or lessen their impact on the environment. It’s designed to let people know what initiatives already exist, so a lot of the leg work has been done, and we know that any help or support you can give will be most appreciated.

We’re a tiny team so can’t cope with being bombarded but if you spot any glaring mistakes or things that don’t work, please let us know about any glitches and we’ll do our best to sort them out. It’s a work in progress and we still need to tidy things up a bit and, with anything like this, things will change and need updating but it’s a start…. We hope you have fun playing with it!
