By registering with us and committing to carbon reduction, you’ll be having your say in how local environmental policy is formed to meet the specific circumstances of residents where you live.
By using the Toolkit, your local councils will be able to see what is already being done in your community, what people are planning to do, and what’s holding them back from taking certain actions. They can use this information to inform their planning and decision making, to come up with support that relevant to what’s actually happening in your area.
Away from the Toolkit, where we have some dedicated actions for how you can use your voice.
However, there is plenty you can do to make sure your voice is heard in your local area. You can be certain that there are many people who live near you who share your concerns about climate change and the ecological crisis. The ways in which we feel comfortable about getting involved are very personal.
Many people are starting to speak out for the first time and some people have been asking for change for many years.
Your school, church, local council and other local community organisations and groups are great places to meet with others nearby who share your concerns about the future, and to identify issues that you can lobby for. Collective action by individual people can be the thing that gets big issues onto the political agenda and we have enormous power as consumers and voters which we can use by letting companies and governments know how important climate change policies are to us.
