Going green with social media - #net2welly Social Media Sept (1 of 3)

For the Sustainability Trust social media is a great way of helping people create healthier and warmer homes, and generate a green buzz. The social media journey so far has involved lots of learning and fun. Megan Hubscher will lift the curtain on the Trust's experiences to date.

The Sustainability Trust operates according to a social enterprise model. The Trust uses profits from its home insulation business to fund its charitable activities which, broadly speaking, cover urban sustainability education, advocacy and provision. The Trust works with a very wide range of clients, supporters and partners on ever evolving projects (at last count 12).

Social media is an essential part of the Trust's communications mix, allowing real time conversations between the people of the Trust, and diverse communities – including potential supporters and customers. Social media allows the flexibility required for immediate communication needs, and dispenses with third parties which generally cost time and money, which of course are both in short supply.

The main online communications channel is Facebook. Plus Twitter, a Wordpress website, Campaign Monitor e-newsletter and YouTube account are part of the mix. 

About Megan 

As the Communications and Media Advisor for the Trust, Megan's role includes most things you’d imagine, and many you wouldn’t.
