Trustee Recruitment

GreenSpirit is celebrating nearly 30 years at the forefront of change, and we are seeking ways of expanding our reach, looking to recruit new Trustees (Council Members) who can help us diversify our appeal to wider audiences. We are particularly keen to talk to younger people and those who might come from, or who are connected to, minority and underrepresented communities.

Do you have a passion for our unique and beautiful planet and hold a desire to be the change you want to see in our world? Might you feel called to play an active role in our small dynamic environmentally/spiritually based charity? If so please get in touch and we can have a conversation about what is expected of a trustee and, most importantly, how YOUR unique passion, skills and interests can blossom amongst us. We’re waiting to hear from you!

Please contact the chair – Janice Every – janiceevery@gmail.com.
