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.
Meetings & get-togethers
We have bi-monthly Hub meetings to discuss existing projects, plan new ones and discuss any interesting topics that might arise. There’s also lots going on between the Hubs, so if you can’t make the meeting but want to find out what else may be happening, get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.
Check 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 Please forgive us if some things seem a little out-of-date – it’s because we’re all volunteers and often too busy working on campaigns and projects to attend to the website!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.
