At the end of 2009, we finalised our Strategic Business Plan for the period 2010-2013. This was developed with the assistance of members of the environmental community and those with a keen environmental interest at our Strategic Visioning Retreat in May of 2009 with further discussion and development through until December 2009. The plan was launched in April of 2010 and continues to be a document which is valid and practical.
These areas will be reviewed over the three year period.
The main Programme areas for the planning period include:
Project Development and Coordination including:
- Grassroots Community Video Productions 2010 and 2011;
- CoRe NETWORK Community Recycling with thanks to the Coca-Cola Foundation for up to 12 centres and the US Embassy for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean for another 3 implemented during 2011 and early 2012;
- The Future Trees;
- and The Hudson Organic Community Garden.
