Rights : Community : Action is a coalition of campaigners, lawyers, planners, facilitators, writers and scientists, united by a shared commitment to tackle the Climate Emergency – with people and for people, and the environment.
Current political action to tackle the Climate Emergency lacks clarity and vision. Progress is appallingly slow. We already know the solutions, but they urgently need to be implemented.
Our aim is to show the way; to make the necessary changes both inarguable and ultimately achievable. We work to empower communities at the front line of the climate crisis, and with local and national government to deliver the radical changes that we need.
Our vision is that the UK is doing what is needed to secure a safe and just climate, nationally and internationally – due to a movement owned and led by empowered communities on the frontlines of its impacts.
