Chapter 2 – Citizen & community engagement

Toolkit chapters

Introduction to this chapter

Climate change can feel overwhelming as a topic. The science can be complex, it is not highly visible for many on a day-to-day basis, and yet there is an increasing amount of news and information – often alarming – coming at us through a range of channels. At a time when public concern about the environment, and climate change in particular, is at a record high, it is vitally important to retain a positive narrative to engage people and communities, and demonstrate how they can take part in this journey of climate action. This chapter sets out different options for engaging communities on climate action with inspirations examples of successful initiatives from around the country.
