Take action A campaign guide for you and your council

1. Climate Action Plan for councils - an introduction

Over 80% of councils have a Climate Action Plan, thanks to the campaigning efforts of Climate Action Groups and community groups. But what happens next? 

We need councils to turn their political promises into ambitious action – leading the way where the national government continues to fail. Learn more about Climate Action Plans for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

2. Develop a Climate Action Plan with your council

Find out what your council is already doing, and whether it's ambitious enough. Then we'll help you identify local priorities and run your local campaign, to build support for a strong Climate Action Plan.

3. How climate friendly is your area?

We’ve assessed local authority areas across England and Wales to see how climate friendly they are. Enter your postcode to see the results for your community.

4. Climate Action Plans for councils explained

Our 50 point Climate Action Plan for councils covers a whole range of important topics. But what does it all mean?

We know this stuff can be complicated. So we’ve broken it down into short guides on each topic covered in the plan.

5. Be inspired - local authority case studies

Councils are already developing innovative solutions to help the UK meet its climate targets, from public transport schemes to investment in renewable energy.

Whether you work for a council, or want to encourage yours to do more, read our case studies to learn more.
