At Brighthelm we see a clear connection between the role of the church in our lives, and the stewardship of our world. We know that our planet’s use of resources is unsustainable and see Brighthelm as playing an effective part in the city-wide dialogue about how we can use the resources in a way that promoted the common good.
Our top sustainability initiatives for 2013 are:
- Looking at all our own organisational practices in terms of their sustainability
- Developing our green hub office space -Brighton & Hove 10:10 and Brighton & Hove Food Partnership are now based here.
- Developing our location as a venue for lectures, seminars, exhibitions, fairs, swap shops etc.
- Developing our community garden – creating community food growing space (a community composting scheme is up and running)
- Becoming a place where people can access information and education on energy efficiency.
Since July 2011 Brighthelm Trust has employed Mike Southcombe as Project Manager, Sue Korman as Director of Communications and Oliver Heath as Architect of the new focus of development.
