Low Carbon Communities Network
The Low Carbon Communities Network was formed to link, network and support the rapidly growing movement of climate change groups that are forming at local and community level.
Our aim is to encourage the adoption of low carbon and zero carbon technologies and lifestyles at a community level, and to enable groups engaged in this to be as effective and efficient as possible.
We are dedicated to making the most of the opportunities that the web presents in building communities and sharing information online.
To create a network of sustainable communities that offers mutual support, materials and infrastructure to make them more effective and efficient in collective action and lobbying for a low carbon future.
- To encourage the adoption of low carbon and zero carbon technologies and lifestyles at the community level, and to enable groups engaged in this to be as effective and efficient as possible.
