Faced with the Climate Emergency, it is easy to feel overwhelmed, powerless and scared. The question is, “What can you do?” Individual action seems frustrating and insignificant in the face of such a global problem.
By working together, it is possible to make a genuine – and substantial difference. We need Climate Leaders to step up in their communities and organise more effectively to achieve rapid change. If we all become Climate Leaders, organising effectively, encouraging new leadership, training and fostering other potential leaders, we can achieve the radical transformation required to make progress.
Do I need to become a Climate Leader to achieve change?
Yes. But don’t worry, it’s very easy.
I’m not a “Leader Type”
Like learning any new skill, it can seem a little strange at first. But if you start slow and take it at your own pace, you’ll be up and running in no time.
I’m interested, what do I do?
Gather a few people together and start having regular meetings. Talk about your concerns and how you might be able to make a difference in your community. And encourage anyone who joins you to become Climate Leaders too – in their respective place of education or work.
If you need help, register with us using the link below and we’ll guide you through the process. By registering with us, we can also help put you in touch with other people in your area and ensure actions are coordinated.
Once you bring people together, you are a leader! Keep going and don’t stop.
If you’re struggling to get a few people together, put out an advert somewhere – in your school, workplace, community centre. Don’t be shy – there are bound to be other people in your community who are also concerned about the Climate Emergency.
Alternatively, join an existing group and see how you can help to reach out to other leaders.
Whether you set up a new group or join an existing group, get in contact with us so we can include you in the network of Climate Leaders. If you’re unsure whether there’s a group in your area, contact us and we’ll find your nearest group.
