Get involved with local climate action

Climate Emergency Community Partnership

Forest of Dean Climate Action has been established to to coordinate a district wide community-based response to the climate emergency. It will bring together communities, businesses and organisations across the district to deliver community climate action through collaboration, empowerment and knowledge sharing, with the imperative of driving the district to become carbon neutral by 2030.

The partnership recently launched a new website where members of the community can sign up to a newsletter and learn more about how they could get involved, and groups and organisations can sign up to be partners.
