This looks interesting. Peterborough Environment City Trust has set up an organisation called Greeniversity. Billed as an “Environmental University”, the idea is for people in the Peterborough area to share skills and knowledge on anything from growing veg to insulating your loft. People can register as students or teachers (or both) and teachers are offered assistance from trained mentors in setting up their sessions, finding the right venue etc.
The Greeniversity has already done a lot of the hard work in finding a wide range of venues throughout the Peterborough area, all which are offered to registered Greeniversity teachers for free, subject to availability.
Apparently the scheme started in January, but is beginning to pick up steam.
