WOW – What a year !
Due to the Climate crisis and the continuous degradation and loss of the earth’s natural environment, habitat and animal species, we had to step up a gear this year...and indeed we have done it – in fact we stepped up stepped up many gears ! The aim of Sustainable Bishop is to raise awareness of the issues above and to encourage the local community to work together to implement projects which hopefully reduce our negative impact on the planet.
Thanks to many hard working individuals we have achieved a tremendous amount this year :
...... and all this achieved since our relaunch in the Spring ! It has not been easy to always keep positive but it proves that working together, many hands can achieve a great deal. We can’t escape the fact that things are going to change, but by getting involved, working as a community and learning what is needed, things will be easier.
Many thanks to everyone who has supported and worked so hard with Sustainable Bishop this year, it would not have been possible without you.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our sustainable vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. If you would like to lead a specific project in the community and for the environment, let us know
We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. Thank you for your time making all this possible!
