Dacorum Climate Action Network

Dacorum CAN logoDacorum Climate Action Network (Dacorum CAN) brings together local individuals and organisations to ‘think global and act local’.

The aim of the network is to bring about meaningful change and provide a platform that will support, educate, encourage and enable people to make positive environmental changes in their everyday lives. These collective actions will help to tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergency by reducing emissions and increasing biodiversity.

Why join?

A recent flagship Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report gave the world a stark "code red" warning and confirmed that climate change is happening, it is caused by human activity, and we have a very short window of time to take action and mitigate against the worst impacts.

It is important that we collectively take action to reduce our emissions as quickly as we can. The more individuals and organisations who work together and take action, the more we can achieve.

By joining the network, regular environmental information and advice will be provided via:
