Rising Tide UK is the United Kingdom part of the International Rising Tide Network, both of which were created in 2000 to carry out direct action against the root causes of climate change, and to work towards a fossil fuel free future. RTUK takes a no-compromise position and believes that only the complete dismantling of the fossil fuel industry and a shift to low consumption lifestyles will be sufficient to halt climate change. Rising Tide UK is formed of regional and local groups in the UK, and supports networks of similar groups around the country. Actions carried out by Rising Tide UK groups range from protests and street-theatre style events, to mass occupations of petrol stations, and blockades of key fossil fuel industrial sites. W
Community is used widely to be a group that gets together such as an association, but also includes municipalities with communal governance structures. Here more formal structures that comply with legal requirements or duties imposed by higher authorities may also give frameworks for action. For example planning can be done in a participatory way.
There may be national plans, local, community, neighbourhood or regional plans or design statements or climate action plans.
