Who is the network
We are open to any group and welcome a range of perspectives from different communities across the West Lothian.
You might be supporting local growers; championing local food; developing a community woodland; taking action on waste, local energy solutions, housing, transport or poverty; conserving local landscapes and biodiversity; or other issues that affect your community.
From small grass roots community groups to larger organisations we want to create a space where you can share your ideas and concerns and build positive connections with each other.
You just have to be a not-for-profit organisation and be aligned with our aims, vision objectives and purpose
How Does It Work?
West Lothian Climate Action Network (WLCAN) is all about bringing together people from across our beautiful district to work together to face the climate emergency.
Climate breakdown poses a huge challenge to every aspect of our society, and it’s happening right now. It can feel overpowering, but if we start from where we are, working together where we live, we can make a massive difference. Indeed, lots is already happening. We believe WLCAN lead the way to a greener, fairer, better future – and we’d love you to be part of it! Join us here
