An invaluable course for anyone looking to develop community activities on climate change, energy-saving and environmental issues.
This course will teach you the skills and knowledge needed to develop the long-term engagement of civil society organisations, groups and individuals in working on climate change, energy issues and low-carbon living.
Local action can take many forms; from work on policy with councils and MPs (developing community managed renewable energy projects) to ongoing work to encourage community organisations to deliver a sustainable future. There are good examples everywhere to learn from and there is an urgent need for effective action.

• Starting positive dialogues

• Why community engagement on climate change can be problematic.
• Linking fuel poverty and low carbon living
• Supporting and working with communities
• Linking adaptation and flooding with action to minimise climate change
