LCCN Action

The ‘Low Carbon Commons’.

Our March Conference and survey are all linked to LCCN’s new project – the ‘Low Carbon Commons’. Our Management Board recognises the need for a new approach to local action and we are setting up a programme to support and strengthen the work of local climate ‘champions’ (leaders, coordinators etc.).  We aim to invite around 100 activists (a first tranche) who are running organisations to join a mutual learning and support programme.  This will be a programme run by and for community leaders. The intention is simple: that

  • Everyone who wants to play an active role in local action has the confidence, skills and support to do so;
  • Every community organisation active on these issues has local champions who can ensure that the group  thrives and delivers meaningful change;
  • When individuals invest time and resources in building their skills they get the best possible return.

A longer paper is available here:  (see low carbon commons 7 as attached, insert in the new Clow Carbon leadership page) Does this sound interesting?  If so, please contact Chris Church, LCCN chair, at chrischurch@cooptel.net
