The Council is committed to empowering Hounslow’s communities to make a real difference to our borough and beyond.

Help us create a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable Hounslow by volunteering alongside like-minded champions of the environment.

By joining the Environmental Champions volunteer group, you’ll be working together with other residents to create a greener and healthier Hounslow, and helping us on our journey to net zero. As a key member of the Green community, you will use also your knowledge of local areas to be a leader for driving community change through hands-on climate action.
