About

We are a network of community groups in Fife that are taking action on Climate Change. By working through this network we intend to share information, resources and knowledge whilst tackling the barriers to low carbon living in Fife. We will act as a channel of communication with Fife Council and the wider Scottish Communities Climate Action Network to whom we are affiliated.

Our Aim

Our aim is to empower and enable communities to create a low carbon future, and promote local resilience and well-being. We will seek to do this by:

  1. Providing a network for mutual support
  2. Promoting a shared vision and voice
  3. Creating opportunities for partnership working and work to tackle the barriers and challenges that community groups taking action on climate change face
  4. Raising awareness and promoting practical community-led action to make Fife communities more sustainable
  5. Acting as a representative structure for in members in working with other organisations such as Fife Community Planning Partnership etc.
  6. Sharing learning across its network and helping to educate groups and individuals on climate change
