The WI Climate Ambassador Scheme

The WI Climate Ambassadors Scheme is a voluntary opportunity for WI members who are passionate about climate and who want to make a difference in their communities. Being a Climate Ambassador is what you make it. There are no formal time commitments, and the scheme is designed to fit around your existing schedule. The aim of the scheme is to provide further support for WI members who would like to take local community action on environmental matters.

Some examples of the great community projects that Climate Ambassadors have undertaken are:

  • Working with pupils from a local primary school and a local care home to install an ‘eco-brick’ bench at the school
  • Building a relationship with their local MP
  • Organising ‘Show the Love’ celebrations in their community
  • Running a campaign to encourage members to plant trees in their local communities
  • Delivering waste recycling talks to WI branches
  • Holding their own community ‘Fixing Fast Fashion’  event to take action on the WI’s ‘End Plastic Soup’ campaign
  • Delivering climate communication talks to WI branches in their Federation
  • Creating bee-friendly havens in their gardens and local communities for our 'SOS for Honeybees' campaign

When WI members register as a Climate Ambassador, they are provided with a range of helpful resources including a climate communication guide produced in conjunction with the climate communication organisation Climate Outreach, a monthly climate newsletter, and access to training webinars and events.
