Climate change issues into account when planning their work. Delivering climate goals will require the engagement of a wide range of stakeholders, including community organisations.
This course will teach you the skills and information needed to develop long-term engagement of civil society organisations, groups and individuals in work on climate change and low-carbon living.
The new Localism Bill stresses the need for better community engagement: the question is how to make that engagement happen on this complex issue. While some groups are active on limiting and adapting to climate change, this poses unique challenges to the majority who may have other interests and priorities.
This course outlines why climate change can be a particularly problematic issue for communities, how to overcome this and how this links to issues around the new Localism Bill and the ‘Big Society’.
Who should attend the training?
The course will benefit anyone working with or seeking to work with community organisations on behaviour change, projects or local action planning.
It is designed for climate and energy staff, community workers, organisers and activists. It covers approaches to work with both enthusiastic and less engaged communities.
