Scottish Communities Climate Action Network

This network seeks to empower and enable communities to create a low carbon future, and promote local resilience and well-being. The 60 community members of Scottish Communities CAN are at the forefront of the community response to climate change.  Their diverse range of activities include energy advice and reduction measures, transport, food & growing, composting, waste reduction and reuse projects which deliver significant benefits towards:

  • Carbon Savings; from more efficient energy use through education, insulation & renewables; transport behaviour change; fewer food miles
  • Health & Wellbeing; from local fresh food; shared community spaces and activities; more active travel
  • Local Economies; through creating local jobs; reducing home and transport fuel bills; increasing local resources and produce
  • Community Development; bringing people together to deliver projects; building skills and networks; identifying and addressing  local priorities
