GlosCAN is a networking organisation that seeks to work in partnership with other organisations with similar aims and values.
GlosCAN is a member of the UK Climate Coalition, and of 350.org.
GlosCAN is also broadly supportive of the Transition movement. However, we would say that the challenge of ‘Peak Oil’ identified by the Transition movement is more one of ensuring that much of current proven reserves of oil and other fossil fuels remain ‘in the ground’ rather than reserves of oil running out.
