So, if you have a local green group, a network of local groups, and a community plan. What next?
Imagine the potential impact of a coordinated community engagement campaign, with each member of the community network contributing a project or activity for their members, all under the theme of climate action, and all supporting a strong, resilient, vibrant community!
An integrated community campaign could include:
- community awareness activities, hosted by numerous groups, schools, libraries
- climate solutions, presented at a Climate Fair run by ratepayers or other community groups
- business engagement, such as Climate Action for Business, run by the local BIA or Chamber of Commerce
- resident engagement, such as Climate Action for Homes, run by local groups and school clubs.
See below for some ideas, or our 50+ Ideas for even more suggestions.
A good campaign will raise awareness and interest across the community, it will help people take action, and it will help to identify opportunities for additional projects to go deeper in implementing climate solutions.
These are some of the specific project ideas for climate action. They can be done independently, or bundled as part of a community campain. Feel free to adapt and adopt!
