Green Dreams Festival – Sept 17th

Finally, after many months of organising, it’s our lovely Green Dreams Festival this month – Sunday 17th September from 10.30am – 4pm at Field Place, Worthing, BN13 1NP.

Please see poster and programme for details, but we have a great line up of community stalls, some great street food and drink and there’s a wide range of entertainment and workshops all day – something for all ages and for families. Do check out the programme. (Timing may change slightly, but this is the programme as it stands at the moment!)

This festival is designed to showcase what some of our wonderful community groups and small businesses do locally to support nature, the environment and our town, so please do come along and enjoy the fun! Massive thanks to our fellow committee members and all our sponsors, but in particular to South Downs Leisure who very generously allow us to use this prestige site for free, and whose staff give their time freely to help all year on the committee, and on the day.

This event will move indoors if it’s raining so come whatever the weather, we will all be there!

Mapping Project

TTW will be helping One Planet run fortnightly online Masterclasses from early July, for anyone who wants to learn how to set up their own resource map or eco-system, or create a climate strategy for their organisation or business.

One of the community partners is using it to create a resource map for the homeless; it’s very inspiring to see the myriad ways in which people are using this technology in order to help others and the planet.

One Planet have redesigned their website and it’s now much more user friendly and easy to navigate: Do have a look around. TTW’s plan is featured (under Case Studies) and a video about how TTW got involved in this (under Community Partners).

If you would like to know more, do email Pauline at [email protected].

Sustainable Worthing Map

If you want to find out how and why we need to scale up what we are doing, in order to support our town and our planet, do take a look at these latest resources.

On 19th April, Sussex Green Ideas looked at how technology is developing a Community Partnership arrangement so that local & environmental groups can utilise the full extent of the platform and services without cost being a barrier.

Here is a very informative and helpful recording of that event: (which features TTW and CREW) and explains how this technology can enable community groups to map their strategic outcomes, actions and indicators with other groups, councils, businesses etc to form an “ecosystem” creating a framework for potential collaboration.

TTW’s project to map Sustainable Worthing has led to a collaboration between other organisations in the UK and One Planet, to develop the system further. It is now being used by local governments including Horsham District Council and eco businesses like to connect people to organisations via a Community Action Map and Ecosystem Plan. This little video gives you an overview of how it works:

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:

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: 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 and the expertise of 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!
