Slack is an online messenger platform you can use to chat to other Climate Action groups and with with staff from Friends of the Earth.
You can use Slack to:
- Share ideas with and learn from other groups
- Find support when you need it
- Hear the latest campaign updates
People like you are already using Slack to share ideas about:
- Starting and running a group
- Organising a Climate Action event
- Working with their council
- A green recovery from coronavirus.
Using Slack instead of email means we can all talk to each other much more easily. Slack is designed to be more:
Accessible and transparent: It's easy to see what's already been said, even when you're late to join a conversation.
Collaborative and efficient: Making decisions can be quicker and easier.
Organised: You can keep discussions about different projects or ideas in one place.
Customisable: You can control what you see and, crucially, what you don't see.
How Slack works
We recognise that Slack might feel new or different, so we’ve put together a series of short video tutorials to help you get started.
