Bloom Digs - Environment

This week on Bloom Digs we will be looking at Environment.

The blog we dig this week is The Environment and Social Media  by The Collaborative on Health and the Environment. It focuses on how social media reaches a broad audience and shows statistics in how each social media application works and backs up how advantageous social networking can be for environmental organsiations getting the word out there. 


The event we dig this week is Facilitation Training Day - London via European Environment Agency. This training day is aimed at all levels of experience, so will be a great opportunity to brush up on some existing skills or if your completely new to taking a leadership role, this event will most certainly provide you with all the tools you need to help you on your way. 

Friends of the Earth (@wwwfoecouk) are holding a 3 day event via Dialogue Matters. The course highlights the benefits and challenges of involving stakeholders in decisions about the environment, understand the principles and concepts of stakeholder participation and to learn practical facilitation skills and how to design a participation process. Another great event that we recommend checking out!


The influencer we dig this week is Guardian Environment (@guardianeco). Not only do they have a huge following, they have also written several blogs on crowdfunding and how crowdfunding platforms are contributing to funding environmental projects across the globe.  Wouldn't it be great if Guardian Environment blogged about your project?!
