Jun 21 UK Climate news: Britain still failing on climate crisis, warn advisers [1]

“The whole thing is run by the government like a Dad’s Army operation.” Lord Deben.

Surface transport emissions in 2019 were at around the same levels that they were in 2010. That reflects an increase in demand and a move towards larger vehicles offsetting improvements in efficiency. / Sustainable transport UK

Although buildings emissions have fallen 14% from 2008 to 2018, the sector is not well placed for the transition to zero emissions. New buildings, which will still be standing in 2050, continue to be built with fossil fuel heating. In fact, there are over a million more homes requiring zero-carbon retrofits now than when the Climate Change Act was passed. The uptake of low-carbon heating systems is almost negligible (less than 30,000 installations in 2019, whereas over a million a year will be needed by the early 2030s [2] / Towards a more democratic and climate friendly way of meeting housing need across England

About CASwiki

Community action for sustainability, or CASwiki, is information and knowledge sharing, but with a focus on what might be useful to community groups and active citizens. You can help. What can we do to make our communities more sustainable and in support of environmental, social and economic wellbeing? / About CASwiki - Join

Why grow CASwiki

"We start with the simple proposition that citizens should be able to influence decisions which affect the places and communities in which they live, work and visit."

Sustainability isn't just something for experts. It's about everyone's quality of life and we all have a part to play.

"... it was notable that the idea that having ‘agency’ (a sense of control over what happens in your local area), is a significant factor in people’s sense of wellbeing." [5]

CASwiki aims to help link up community and personal action for sustainability worldwide. ...more


Knowledge sharing can help! It can help with finding contacts, making connections and networking. As well as information about places CASwiki shares information and knowledge about 29 Community action for sustainability topics (what we can do - see right hand column) and Resources to help action.
