Six Themes

PROSPECTS has  six themes of sustainability: -

  • Biodiversity - Improve biodiversity and wildlife habitats means protecting and enhancing local wildlife and plantlife. Examples of projects that would fulfil this aim include nature trails, woodlands, stream clearance and wildlife gardens. see Projects and Photos, PROSPECTS Panels, Nature Walk Projects   Link Conservation In Hyndburn

  • Energy - Promote energy conservation and the use of renewables means home and community energy efficiency which could lead to warmer homes and reduced fuel poverty. Examples of projects include energy efficiency measures in community venues and community micro-renewable energy generation using for example biomass, heat pumps, wind, photovoltaics, solar or hydro sources. see Windfall, Climate Change   Link Climate Change
