Introductory information on Citizen action networks and The Alternative UK is on our Networks UK page.

Of course what each and every CAN chooses to work on is up to them. What follows is just a menu of possibilities, but drawn from peoples' and networks concerns over the emergencies we face (climate, ecological), and what they feel it's essential for them to work towards. The list is not meant to be exhaustive and the topics are not meant to be seen as mutually exclusive. And of course as titles they are open to improvement. See also: Citizen Action Networks near you

Inspiring quotes[edit | edit source]

"In giving food to other beings and species we maintain conditions for our own food security. In feeding earthworms we feed ourselves. In feeding cows, we feed the soil, and in providing food for the soil, we provide food for humans. This worldview of abundance is based on sharing and on a deep awareness of humans as members of the earth family. This awareness that in impoverishing other beings, we impoverish ourselves and in nourishing other beings, we nourish ourselves is the real basis of sustainability." Vandana Shiva
