Schools, Church & Community
Taking individual action to address environmental problems is invaluable as everyone can make a difference but collective action through ones school, church or community can encourage others to participate and so create that critical mass required to promote real change.
Raising awareness through sharing of information enables more people to become involved, while benefiting from the experience of others. The eco-schools and eco-congregations programmes can be initiated by a few enthusiastic individuals but soon lead to the greater involvement of the whole school or congregation. While the development of sustainable communities through participation in local authority consultations or the climate friendly communities programme can involve the whole community in thinking about the way forward towards achieving a more sustainable future.
