Community-led Climate Action

Active community-led partnerships are doing vital work in charting the local course to net zero carbon emissions and ecological recovery.

There is much valuable synergy with activity of Partnership, and we continue to  develop this work with both:

South Shropshire Climate Action

This group is focussing on the geographical area of the Ludlow constituency. In May 2021, they launched their Climate Action Plan to reach Net-Zero by 2030.  There is an intention to take output of the group to the delayed COP26 meeting being hosted by the UK.  

A comprehensive set of resources can be found on their website including documents, videos and case studies.

Shropshire Climate Action Partnership (SCAP) 

Bringing together organisations, businesses, and communities across Shropshire, through collaboration, knowledge-sharing and empowerment, SCAP will support rapid decarbonisation, large-scale restoration of biodiversity and the natural environment, and the development of the sustainable, resilient, and inclusive communities and enterprises needed for a sustainable future.

This Shropshire-wide group developed with a combination of grassroots community initiative, and support from Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council.
