TIMBERLAND SHORTLISTED FOR THE DRUM SOCIAL PURPOSE AWARDS
KINC has been shortlisted for The Drum Social Purpose Awards for our Timberland urban greening project with Loyle Carner in Thornton Heath, Croydon.
Shortlisted in the Best Community Engagement category, the project is part of Timberland’s global Nature Needs Heroes initiative. KINC and Timberland aimed to show how individuals working together can have positive impact on local environments through greening, helping reverse the effectives of climate change, benefit social integration, mental health and creativity.
The project was made into a two-part TV series, Concrete Green with Loyle Carner on MTV., showing the MTV audience the benefits of urban greening and inspiring viewers with the message that everyone can make a difference.
Thanks to everyone who’s been part of this project including Croydon Council, National Park City Foundation and Urban Growth.
