Help us transform our former Victorian warehouse into a super energy efficient and accessible community building.

by Birmingham Friends of the Earth in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

We have been creating positive environmental change from our building and reaching out into the wider community for the last 40 years.  We now need your support to ensure we can carry on doing so for another 40 years and to take our positive impct on the local community, economy and the environment to a new level.

With the city's plans for HS2 happening on our doorstep, we are ideally placed to demonstrate an alternative community-lead model of regeneration, showcasing eco-renovation of existing buildings and how community engagement can deliver real benefits for people in our immediate vicinity, the city as a whole and more widely still.

By becoming a member and investor in this project, you have a vital role to play, not just in providing finance, but also in having a democratic say in shaping our future plans.

We are asking you to make an investment in Community Shares of between £250 and £10,000.  If you are not able to become an investor, but would still like to support the project, you can make a donation through Local Giving (click on www.localgiving.org/charity/birminghamfoe).  We also welcome volunteers - just give us a ring on 0121 632 6909 or call in for a chat.
