Action for Sustainable Living provides fun volunteering opportunities in community run sustainability projects.
The E Team
Manchester is buzzing with exciting environmental projects that need enthusiastic volunteers to lend a hand and share their time, skills and knowledge of all things green.
Action for Sustainable Living brings together people who want hands-on experiences of sustainability and eco projects happening just around the corner. The E-Team is a happy bunch of volunteers who dip in and out of lots of environmental activities, with something different being offered on the menu every month. From growing veggies and getting handy with green building, to helping to run community cafes and teaching people to be more energy smart – we’ve interests to suit everyone.
People from all backgrounds are welcomed and no previous experience is required. We just ask for a cheerful attitude and a willingness to help out and learn more about local sustainability projects. Throughout the year we offer training in environmental awareness and provide our volunteers with a full induction. We can fund any volunteering expenses too, such as transport costs and a bite to eat.
The E-Team is the perfect activity for making new friends, getting fit and healthy, gaining work experience, growing new skills, building confidence and making a difference to local sustainability. A hive of creativity and fun is waiting for you just around the corner!
Lots of our E-Team volunteers have gone on to start sustainability projects of their own design and making and are supported by our staff with coaching and accredited training, a great opportunity for people who wish to gain experience in the environmental sector to help you get the job you want.
