A Helping Hand for Scottish Nature
GreenTweed Eco – Who We Are
GreenTweed Eco aims to link environmental groups and charities with young people and schools across Scotland. Through the development of large-scale wildlife conservation and education projects we want to encourage engagement between Scotland's children and the natural world around us. Together we can tackle the great environmental challenges of our time.
What We Stand For
Bringing communities together
At the heart of GreenTweed Eco is a desire to bring together community groups and individuals to tackle the great environmental problems of our time. Whether that is organising large-scale regional events like the Great Borders River Clean or the Highland Primary Schools Birdbox Project, we aim to include and inspire groups and individuals in the fight for the wild world all around us.
Developing the future guardians of our environment
Developing the future guardians of our environment Young people have boundless enthusiasm and optimism. The desire to nurture, encourage and harness that relentless, positive energy is a central desire of all GreenTweed Eco’s projects. Our founder, Tom Rawson, is a full-time primary school teacher with many years’ of experience. Bringing the Natural World into the eyeline of young people is therefore a key aim for GreenTweed Eco.
Working toward a common goal
At GreenTweed Eco, we want to work with anyone and everyone who shares our commitment to the preservation and enhancement of the Natural World. Working alongside charities and companies, trusts and community groups, schools and youth clubs, family groups and individuals we aim to demonstrate that concerted and coordinated effort can result in real and measurable environmental gains.
