About Us

Aim

West Lothian Action Network (WLCAN) brings together local individuals and organisations to ‘think global and act local’ and be Future Ready.

The aim of the network is to bring about meaningful change and provide a platform that will support, educate, encourage and enable people to make positive environmental changes in their everyday lives. These collective actions will help to tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergency by reducing emissions and increasing biodiversity.

We aim to create a safe space where groups of all sizes can share ideas and concern and build positive connections with each other.

  • Reduce impact: To reduce our carbon footprint and our use of the earth’s resources.
  • Get greener: Develop healthy green spaces, supporting food growth and wildlife.
