Take Climate Action is a campaign by Friends of the Earth that connects activists to local groups in their area and gives them the information they need to push councils to act on the climate crisis. Take Climate Action acts as a hub for local community groups to take more effective action by providing resources and training in climate organizing, effective communication, and community mobilizing. Their regular training sessions are run by experienced activists who teach groups how to connect to local consituates.
Those ready to join action in the streets 📢
Take Climate Action is a refreshing resource to come across in the climate movement. They are about facilitating concrete climate action, no vague tips but tools to help take action. They do regular trainings for everyone to join to learn how to organise for local action, campaign for specific issues and build community. Their platform is intuitive, easy to navigate and spells out exactly what and how people can take action. Their climate action map of the UK allows people to find and submit local climate groups in their area, making it even easier for people to join the movements in their communities. To encourage further action their data-based tool ‘Near You’, allows people to learn what their council is doing about climate change which can be used to create more successful climate action campaigns. Take Climate Action should be one of the go-to resources for any community organiser.
