The Future Now project held a public consultation in Stroud in April 2012 to ask people what issues around sustainability they are interested in – this is the video produced by Lorraine Weeks.

The Future Now project

Stroud Community TV have been part of the YES! (Youth Exploring Sustainability) Big Lottery FUTURE NOW bid which has developed into Future Now. This is a project with all 10 secondary schools in the District, Transition Stroud, private enterprises (including farming), Wood U Waste and Stroud District Youth Council. A whole host of other local organisations including Glos Naturalists Society, Down To Earth, the Bee Guardian Foundation and Glos Orchard Group are involved in helping youth explore what it means to be sustainable and to influence their own future.

Well the great news is that the bid was one of the 30 proposals that has been accepted and has received a grant of £10,000 to develop a proposal for one of the 10 available pots of £1m!

The project is hugely exciting and has potential to lead to all sorts of wonderful local projects. For more details contact Anna Bonallack 01453 883248.
