Green Lens is a new photography and video competition open to 16-25 year olds across Birmingham. Organised by ecobirmingham in collaboration with Ampersand Projects, the project invites young people to have their voice heard regarding green issues that are important to our collective futures. The winning entries will be exhibited in the prestigious gallery at Mac Birmingham.

Green Lens was developed in collaboration with a panel of young photographers from Birmingham City University and University of Coventry.

Northfield Ecocentre & ecobirmingham

Founded in 2009, Northfield Ecocentre exists to affect social change and transition towards a low carbon sustainable lifestyle. By inspiring and supporting communities and organisations to take positive action, we demonstrate that building low carbon communities brings benefits, opportunities and well-being to everyone, whilst protecting our environment.  

In July 2018, Northfield Ecocentre officially becomes part of a new independent charity – ecobirmingham, that will serve, inspire and represent the city.

Ampersand Projects

Ampersand Projects collaborate with communities and artists across Birmingham and the Black Country with the goal of building meaningful connections between people and public spaces. We work to empower communities and individuals to be creative, to discover their heritage and share their own stories.
