About Climate Connected

This project seeks to build an easy to use toolkit which supports communities to take a number of steps necessary to build climate action. There will be supports to build a decarbonisation committee for the community including a decarbonisation plan for the local area. This will include supports to engage the people of the community to measure the carbon intensity of a myriad of behaviours and actions of residents’ lifestyles.
