We want community groups to help lead Edinburgh’s journey to becoming a net zero, climate ready city by 2030.
Edinburgh Communities Climate Action emerged out of COP26 as a space for community groups and voluntary organisations to connect together and work on the climate and nature emergencies.
It is supported by Our Future Edinburgh and EVOC.
We want to encourage community climate action by:
- Starting, encouraging and helping community-led activities which increase local climate learning, forward planning and action which can support Edinburgh’s climate targets.
- Increasing opportunities for communities, groups and voluntary organisations to explore issues together at a strategic level and influence local and national policy decisions.
- Providing an empowering platform for community groups and voluntary organisations to come together and lead actions on climate change, in Edinburgh and beyond.
- Enhancing the capacity of groups and communities to deliver effective climate interventions across Edinburgh.
About the Forum
The new Edinburgh Communities Climate Action Forum is a place for communities, groups and voluntary organisations to discuss the climate and nature emergency and specifically the transformation that needs to happen in Edinburgh and how we can play a part in delivering that change. This is a platform for community groups and voluntary organisations to come together and discuss shared actions, plan and initiate collaborations, exchange resources learning and skills, coordinate on shared funding bids, access materials and resources, as well as inform strategic decision making.
The forum is open to all community groups and voluntary organisations in Edinburgh and you are invited to join the Organising Group where your group can take part in leading on the activities of the forum.
