You can make connections and share ideas, news, and issues that will likely be relevant with others. This forum can be beneficial for being up-to-date and discussing solutions with experienced peers.

We are launching our Climate Action campaign on the 31st of October till the 12th November, to coincide with COP26. The social media campaign will feature on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Stories with the aim to celebrate the tremendous impact that volunteers make in the Climate Action Movement. We also want to take advantage of the extra focus of Climate Action during COP26 to highlight a variety of inclusive ways that people can get involved in their local communities – i.e. Active Travel, Charity Shops, Community Growing, Environmental Projects, Clean ups, Activism, Education and more.
If you want to draw inspired people to your organisation to gain more support in your Climate Action Aims and/or want to show off the amazing work you do with volunteers support, then please get in touch – email@example.com or simply tag us in your posts so that we can like and share it!
