This month, Councillor Donna Stimson, Cabinet Member for Climate Action and Sustainability at Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, opened the doors to the Building Bridge Hub. The exciting initiative aims to bring all of the community together to build solutions for a sustainable future. The Hub was marked officially open through the ring of a bell by Theresa May, MP for Maidenhead and former UK Prime Minister.

Creating a sustainable, regenerative future requires us to understand that issues in society are interconnected: from health to climate to social equity. We need to ‘join the dots’ to form strong, resilient communities that work together and focus on Shared Outcomes. Centres like the Building Bridges Hub will be key in forming connections across the community. They provide guidance for people on their climate, health and well-being journeys.

We’re very happy that OnePlanet has been able to support this project. Our technology has been used to create a Community Resource Map based around the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The Map connects all the voluntary groups across the borough together. We look forward to seeing the Resource Map being used by the community to discover new ways that they can get involved in sustainability.  

OnePlanet want to thank Donna and her volunteers for all of their hard work in setting up the Building Bridges Hub. They have created something truly special and meaningful for the community. We are pleased to see more community initiatives like this emerging. Including the Climate Resilience Centre Worthing (which is also using our technology), the Greener and Cleaner Hub, and others in the Climate Emergency Centres network.

The Building Bridges Hub can be found inside Nicholsons Shopping Centre in Maidenhead. If you would like to find out more, please contact niamh.james@oneplanet.com. Learn how OnePlanet is helping local communities to build resilience and create a regenerative future.
