Bromley Environment Network (BEN) was founded to support Bromley community groups working together to protect and improve our environment.
Our mission and values
We aim to bring community groups in the borough of Bromley together to inspire and support residents, the Council and other community stakeholders to work collaboratively to make our borough a greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live, both now and in the future.
Member-led: we exist to bring interested groups together and our activity is guided by our members.
Collaborative: we will achieve more if we work together. Our aim is to build connections and relationships, and share information, because we believe that by working together we can achieve more.
Enterprising: we are resourceful and ambitious in everything we do, supporting our members and partners to build meaningful change.
Our main areas of focus include clean air initiatives, trees and biodiversity, energy, Transport and road usage, consumption and waste.
Membership of Bromley Environment Network (BEN) is open to all types of community organisations interested in collaborating to reduce the borough’s environmental impact and create a greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live.
You could be, but not limited to, one of these kinds of groups:
- residents associations,
- faith groups,
- sports groups,
- book groups,
- local business associations
- any other community stakeholder in Bromley.
Any such group is welcome to request to join BEN, stating their contact details, the geographical coverage of their group (if any), and areas of particular interest.
