Community Team campaign training by Lizzie, Rupert, Cat and Grace in Edinburgh.

Hello! We are the UKYCC Community Team. We focus on community climate action and the small differences we can make in our local communities, which can often be overlooked by international climate agendas.

After almost five years of the Local Catalyst Network, we are pursuing a new project in which we will be supporting your campaigns in the final years of school and after school, providing you with invaluable skills to lead your own environmental projects which will be the key to combatting climate change. Whilst this new project is in development, we encourage you to still get in contact with your community environmentalism ideas. If your local community is badly affected by air pollution, food waste or just needs to improve its recycling schemes, the UKYCC Community Team is here to guide you towards an effective campaign. Our team is all-inclusive and we aim to make environmentalism accessible to everyone whether in the inner-city of London or the Scottish Highlands, the Community Team will be there to support you!

Our previous project was the Local Catalyst Network which was running since August 2012. The scheme involved the Community Team recruiting and training young climate activists in order to support them in their individual climate outreach projects. On a wider scale, we support the UK and International Teams and focus on domestic climate change issues, like divestment and anti-fracking campaigns. While we aim to make climate change activism a fun and exciting place, we maintain our stance that the UK government need to do more work to affect change.
