Supporting the Low Carbon Communities Network
Low Carbon Communities Network aims to encourage the adoption of low carbon and zero carbon technologies and lifestyles at a community level, and to enable groups engaged in this to be as efficient as possible. Its focus is on greater community and political awareness for action and to be an effective lobbying body to create a significant media and political profile to influence the UK stance at the United Nations Climate Summit in Copenhagen in 2009.
On 4th October 2008 the Low Carbon Communities Network will host a national conference for low carbon community groups in Langollen, Wales. The conference has been widely seen by communities as a necessary step to develop significant and long lasting carbon reduction in community projects and to encourage a common purpose in their communities. Funding will enable a member of staff to do administrative tasks and pay volunteer expenses to the growing number of enquiries from community groups during and after the conference.
