An innovative new tool for community action
Communities in Scotland now have a lively and accessible 130-page online resource to help them achieve their goals. The site includes the Climate Action Hub - a source of information about the causes and impacts of climate change, what you can do, and what other groups are already doing in Scotland and around the world. But it isn't just for communities working on climate issues. There is a Community Action Toolkit with a vast array of resources on everything from how to involve your community, ideas for raising money for your work, and information about different approaches you might choose to take.
Catalyst Campaigns worked with the Graphics Company and Stuff and Content to create the resource as part of new website of Scottish Education and Action for Development (SEAD). We think it's unique for the Scottish context, with its particular focus on community-based climate action. Have a look at what it has to offer - and do give us feedback if you feel we've missed something out.
