Scottish Communities Climate Action Network’s (CAN) aim is to enable, facilitate and support the transformational change to a post-carbon future. CAN are a grassroots network of community groups that are acting on climate change. As a ‘community of communities’ CAN provide a shared vision and voice for our members and work to address barriers and challenges, enabling communities to shape their own low-carbon future and promote local resilience and well-being.
CAN seek to support and facilitate community groups into climate change action. Address barriers and challenges to action on climate change. Provide a voice to communicate a shared vision to the wider world and broadcast good practice and innovation.
CAN understand that communities have a unique and crucial role in creating a sustainable, post-carbon future – creating sustainable, resilient places for us each to live is what this is all about. Government and national NGOs have a clear role to play in supporting communities, but delivering a low carbon Scotland is about communities leading, and being empowered to do so. CAN’s Vision for Scotland in 2024 was an outcome from our 2014 members conference.
