Sustaining Change is a MERCi project to green Greater Manchester's voluntary sector. Kindling has been helping to develop the audit and training elements of the four year programme, and in January 2010 we piloted some of the training with MERCi staff, trying out creative and interactive activities to introduce the many elements of sustainability.

Kindling, with freeelance trainer Sandy Carter, have developed a colourful carousel of activities covering the eight Sustaining Change themes: Food and Drink; Purchasing and Procurement; Energy and Water; Travel; Buildings and Local Neighbourhood; Inclusion and Participation; Partnership and Promotion; and Waste.

If your organisation is interested in participating in the Sustaining Change audit, or attending one of the introductory training sessions contact Claire at MERCi on 0161 273 1736.
