✔️ £30 could help provide a variety of training sessions for groups on public speaking and influencing local decision-makers

✔️ £50 could help community groups to run their own campaigns and events.

Fuelling action on the ground

We need collective action to tackle the climate and ecological emergencies. The government and big business are not treating this as a priority. Instead, they’re sticking to business as usual.

But we know that big change can start small, and that’s why we believe in the power of community. Our network is a powerful collective of ordinary people driving real change in their local areas.

By supporting us today, you'll be empowering these local heroes to:

✔️ Hold local and national decision-makers to account

✔️ Lobby MPs to take positive climate action

✔️ Plant trees and protect green spaces

✔️ Fend off polluting or unjust proposals

✔️ Push councils to stop investment in fossil fuels.

Decades of impact

Together, our incredible network has achieved multiple victories in their local communities. They've:

✔️ Stopped fracking at Preston New Road and Roseacre (as part of a wider successful campaign to stop fracking altogether in England)

✔️ Protected Oxfordshire wetland from a new motorway (twice!)

✔️ Helped the town of Merthyr Tydfil stop a new coal mine

✔️ Spared Hull from a giant new waste incinerator in the city.

Help power our network with a donation today. Your gift will help us continue to support our community groups in the fight for a greener and fairer future for everyone.
