Copeland Climate Champions

The Community Climate Champions project started in 2021 to generate new grassroots voluntary action on the climate crisis, and empower and increase self agency in the people stepping up to become volunteer champions.

The project is one of CAfS ‘broad and light’ awareness raising projects within the wider programme of activity under the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership – which aims for Cumbria to reach net zero emissions by 2037.

In this third year of the project, CAfS has focused efforts in the former district of Copeland.  People living in Copeland from all backgrounds and level of experience are trained to become influencers in the local area, generating climate positive action through valuable conversation and events.
