  • Delivering Zero Carbon Britain training using a ‘train the trainer’ model to increase the skills and capacity of communities to take action on climate change.
  • Supplying the tools to enable people to turn climate emergency declarations into action.
  • Setting up a digital resource hub and online network to provide peer support and increase confidence of individuals and communities to take action on climate change.

In conjunction with the Zero Carbon Britain Hub, an Innovation Lab will identify key issues, priorities and tasks; develop ideas that impact on these areas; and create routes into larger scale impact or systems change.
