Connect with our Champions

These dedicated individuals from across Dorset each have a unique way of working within their community, but what they share is a common aim to see a more sustainable Dorset. They have been recruited as volunteer Sustainability Champions and if you’re looking for local information or advice on sustainability then these will be the people to speak to. Do you know someone in your area who would make a great Sustainability Champion? If you are interested please email us.
