Carbon Landscape project

Work is gathering pace on a pioneering environmental initiative to restore some of Wigan and Leigh’s former industrial heartlands. Earlier this year a £2million Heritage Lottery Fund grant was secured for the Carbon Landscape project, led by Manchester University’s School of Environment, Education and Development. In the borough, researchers and ground workers will be focusing on areas along a corridor such as Amberswood, Wigan Flashes, Pennington Flash and Hope Carr.

It is a good idea, but I think it is a stupid name for it, carbon is associated with being black, sooty (not sweep) and dirty etc

Why not call it something naturey and nice ...
