Objectives

Since 2019 Alton Climate Action Network (ACAN) has brought people in Alton and the surrounding villages together to take positive community action to reduce our impact on the planet and restore the natural environment. 

Its aim is to raise awareness of the climate and environmental crises and encourage local people to adopt lifestyle changes to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the effects of global warming.

Activities

It operates as an umbrella organisation to 13 groups and projects these include:

Alton Repair Cafe, Alton Community Cupboard, Alton & Villages Local Action for Nature, Young ACAN, Alton Local Food Initiative, Energy Alton, Alton Community Share, Cycle Alton, Alton Sustainable Eating, Action on Plastic, Eco-Streets 

It also runs fund raising campaigns for its adopted charity the Gumbi Education Fund in Malawi where villagers are learning permaculture techniques to build resilience against crop failures.
