A Framework for Community Action on Climate Change

Alan has been working with associate Simon Pepper to faciliate a small group of community activists interested in this subject.  The aim is to identify and remove the barriers that communities face in taking action on climate change.

In an exercise funded by Keep Scotland Beautiful the 'Framework Group' has identified 14 barriers and begun to involve others across the sector in identifying how these might be overcome.  They analysed feedback from practitioners, researchers, consultants, policy makers and from organisations supporting community action, to identify the most important barriers, and circulated a report in December 2010 listing the recommendations.  The response was overwhelmingly supportive, with a number of useful comments and additions.  By inviting responders to score the recommendations we wer able to list priority issues.  The Framework Group is intending to pick up on this work directly with government after the May elections.

At the CCF Gathering in November 2011 the Framework was well received by the delegates and a Steering Group of 17 representatives stepped up to take the Framework forward.
