ecobirmingham is a new charity for Birmingham that will help change the city. We want to help create a sustainable city, inspire positive change and build stronger communities.

Created in 2009 as Northfield Ecocentre, a project of Central England Quakers, we became an independent charity in July 2018, allowing us to grow our work across the city.


Green Lens

Over the Summer young people across Birmingham were invited to share the green issues important to them, locally or globally, through the medium of photography. Collected through an open, city-wide submission process, the Green Lens competition was open to 16-25 year olds. Organised in collaboration with Ampersand Projects, the project allowed young people to have their voice heard regarding green issues that are important to their, and our collective future.
