Greenwave was an initiative between November 2007 and March 2009, co-ordinated by Green Alliance, with the ultimate aim of deepening public concern and accelerating political action on climate change. It provided a space for those in the voluntary sector and elsewhere who want to reflect, exchange experiences, learn and develop new ideas to achieve this aim.
What is Greenwave?
Greenwave was designed to stimulate new thinking about how we could deepen public concern and accelerate political action on climate change. Greenwave was about learning lessons from our successes and failures, acquiring new insights from other sectors and new research, and developing new approaches that apply these insights.
Greenwave masterclasses brought together the brightest and best thinkers and practicioners on the environment, providing a space for them to discuss, challenge and learn from each other:
