Countershade Community Interest Company is a socially engaged organisation working with communities in the metropolitan and rural West Midlands. Incorporated in 2013 to help develop environmental awareness and community cohesion, through a process of creative engagement with nature and the natural heritage of the city and countryside.

We work within the public and private sectors, as well as in schools delivering cross-curricula activities which develop sustainability and help people respond to the climate and ecology crisis.
