Community action has a lot to offer. See it, celebrate it and sample it.

Welcome to CASwiki's UK portal. Our focus is on Community Action for Sustainability. This includes community involvement through climate action, environmental action and many other sustainability topics.

The gift of climate and ecological emergency is that we all get to work together. Ordinary citizens and community groups naturally share what they learn, and what they know of what helps. Everyone can help, everyone has something to offer, everyone is welcome. We all need to design, make and grow a better future for ourselves, our communities and our world. Together we CAN. Yes we CAN.
