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.
Mining giant’s plans under public scrutiny
After our four year fight and an unprecedented level of national and global concern, a four week inquiry starts on Tuesday 7 September. West Cumbria Mining Company will face public scrutiny of its plans for a new coal mine in Cumbria.
See our community projects and campaigns pages to find out what we’re doing and how you could get involved. If you have an idea for a new project, get in touch or come along to our next meeting or event.
