A fair bit of this article is about the UK or England, so Img13713 your help with with rewriting for a wider audience would be great!

Finding local groups Edit

  1. Check our Places, projects and networks listings. For example for groups in England - see listings on the article for each region. The listing focuses on groups who recognise the need for a joined up approach, and active groups that have a web presence. Of course there will be many more including action groups with a narrower focus.
  2. Check with your local council. Is there a Sustainability Forum or Local Agenda 21 group?
  3. The Planet St Helens website includes a listing of Local Agenda 21 links across the UK. Help them keep this list up to date by reporting broken links or sending up-to-date web addresses.

Starting up a local sustainability action group Edit

Also check with your local council if you’d like to start up a group.

  • Do they have an LA21 or sustainability officer?
  • Can they tell you what’s happening in your area already?
  • Would they be willing to help you set up your group?
  • Do they have any other contacts who'd be willing to help?

Social networks Edit

Investigate these (Social network service on Wikipedia) to both discover and build groups. (Section needs expanding)

Further information Edit

There are some useful guides available both online and as printed publications (Special Note: Please remember much, if not all, of this information may be copyright, so do not copy it here! We will develop our own information, to be available under the GDFL, over time)
