Welcome to SLACCtt
South Lakes Action on Climate Change Towards Transition (SLACCtt) is a community-based charity which brings together people who want to do something about climate change and promote a more sustainable lifestyle.
We are part of the global Transition Town Network, and our aim is to decrease the dependence of the South Lakes community on fossil fuels, reduce carbon emissions and help build local resilience in key areas such as food, energy, transport and economics. We also campaign and raise awareness on local, national and international climate change issues.
Our current main project is our pollination project, working with 7 Schools & Community groups to investigate possibilities for a pollination corridor in Kendal. It is grant funded by the Ernest Cook Trust and Kendal Town Council.

Get involvedCheck out our projects page to find out what we’re doing, and what campaigns and projects you could get involved in. If you have an idea for a new project, get in touch or come along to our next meeting or event. Please forgive us if some things seem a little out-of-date – it’s because we’re all volunteers and often too busy working on campaigns and projects to attend to the website!
We rely on membership fees for much of our work (annual membership only £10!). Click here for details on how to join. We also produce a free monthly newsletter, giving details of upcoming events, talks, courses, news and calls-to-action. Sign up for this here.
