Dacorum Climate Action Network (CAN) is a new initiative that brings together individuals and organisations to ‘think global and act local’ to help tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
We're launching the network to help bring about meaningful change by educating, encouraging and enabling people to make positive environmental changes in their everyday lives.
Dacorum CAN is aimed at both individuals and organisations and is open to everyone who lives, works and plays in Dacorum and pledges to take positive environmental actions. The network will support its members to understand
and take action on environmental issues locally.
All organisations are welcome, including community groups, schools, businesses, charities, and more.
Joining Dacorum CAN is quick, free and simple – just fill out our online registration form.
Find out more about joining Dacorum CAN and other Climate Emergency initiatives we are doing on our Dacorum CAN page. We also have a Facebook group you can join, too.
Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services, Cllr Graham Barrett, said: “The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which gave a code red to humanity, shows how urgently we all need to work together to reduce our emissions.
I encourage every individual and organisation in the borough to join the Dacorum Climate Action Network and pledge to make positive environmental changes."
Dacorum CAN is being launched during Great Big Green Week. From 18 to 26 September 2021, communities across the country are joining together to celebrate action being taken on climate in the run up to COP26 - the global climate change conference, which the UK
is hosting in November. We will be running a stall in Hemel Hempstead town centre on 21 September and in Berkhamsted High Street on 22 September to support the week.
