Devon CAN (Devon Climate Action Network)
There are many groups and individuals across Devon interested in sustainability, transition and low carbon useage. Up until now these groups have been largely working in isolation with variable degrees of success in their campaigning. Devon Climate Action Network plans to help these groups in their work by:
1. facilitating the sharing of knowledge, skills and resources
2. helping the groups promote each others work
3. helping coordinate joint campaigns to reach the Devon population in a more effective manner
4. offering a coordinated lobbying of local government
We believe that through rapidly accelerating climate change and the reaching of peak oil, a collapse in world economic order as we know it is about to happen. By working together we believe we will be more effective at getting our message across.
The Devon CAN Network is your network. Please let us know what you as a group or as an individual would want the Network to do for you. Have you any skills or knowledge that you would like to share? Do you know of other individuals or groups who would like to be involved in the Network? Please spread the word. By working together we can work smarter. Time is short. We need to look at different ways of improving the delivery of our message. We believe that Devon CAN will be able to help promote the message to a different level.
