Here we share what environmental initiative worked in our community (in our parish, in our school or in our shared building). What was it, how do we know it worked and any tips to help other communities try it too.

If you need inspiration, have a look at a list of ideas here. Many of these may be easily adapted for communities.

To share initiatives that worked on a personal, individual or family level, use the sister page here.
