Local environmental networks LENs are made up of individuals with interests in a wide range of environmental and climate issues. They provide a central hub around which people from a given area can gather, discuss projects, ask for help, create change and become involved in their local Public Participation Network.

Communication, sharing resources, and having conversations about climate lets each other know that we are all working together to make a better future for our planet. It is important that we are all open to learning and that we can talk to our friends, family and neighbours about it. You might wonder where you can start. Joining a group of like minded people can help you learn more about how to act for climate in your everyday life, and how to talk about these issues with others in your life. Local environmental networks may be the place for you.

All around the country LENs are being used to bring people together, get conversations started, create meaningful projects for the local community and positively impact the wider surroundings.
