Nailsworth Climate Action Network – NCAN A group of local people including Town and District Councillors met on 29 January 2016 responding to The Paris Agreement of December 2015 agreed by the United Nations; and we endorse the Paris Pledge 2015 which calls for action from civil society. It was resolved to form a group with the purpose stated above.
In September 2016 we created a Constitution for NCAN [NCAT as it was at first named, Nailsworth Climate Action Town] and are now formerly constituted as a not for profit community group.
NCAN’s main goal is to increase awareness of the climate change challenge in Nailsworth and in the locality, and to engage in and support practical measures to reduce our town’s carbon footprint.
Our activities centre on a number of themes including buildings, energy and transport.
Transition Stroud is a dynamic group of volunteers working for a future with more locally grown food, readily available sustainable energy, better transport and strong communities.
Our focus is on engagement, learning and action.
Anyone can be involved. Everyone is needed.
We were established in 2006, and our first projects began in 2007, making us the world’s fifth Transition town. There are now over 1,000 similar initiatives in 50 countries around the world.
Gloucester Churches Environmental Justice Network – the purposes of the network are to encourage reflection and action on environmental issues (especially in relation to a just and fair world) among Gloucestershire Christians; to support and encourage local Christians who are concerned about the environment; to provide an information exchange and to facilitate co-ordination of initiatives.
Vision 21 is a sustainability charity and it is as much a social organisation as an environmental one. Formed in 1994 it operates in Gloucestershire running a variety of local projects.
