Do you want to find out how you and your community can take climate action?

It is important to understand the impacts climate change has on our historic environment, so you can identify appropriate action. We've made several resources available to learn more.

Holding a climate action workshop

To help you identify ideas and work through challenges, you can use our climate action workshop template. While this is designed to be used for a group, it can still be helpful to get a discussion going even among two people. The workshop will help you identify ideas for potential projects, which can later be followed up, or for the group to identify actions that can be split between them.
