Whalley Range Climate Action Group

Whalley Rangers Climate Action group banner

Think globally, act locally for a buzzing, thriving, hopeful, climate-safe Whalley Range

We are a group of local residents who work together to protect the climate. We make individual changes, but we also campaign for the Government, the Council and businesses to act urgently.

What are we doing?

  • Acting - making changes in our own lives, taking part in local activity, campaigning
  • Sharing - ideas, knowledge, skills
  • Learning - from each other and from others
  • Organising - events, activities, projects, actions
  • Supporting each other - practical and emotional
  • Creating a ‘human library’ – together we know how to save energy, grow food and lots of other things - Just ask!

The climate action group functions as an umbrella group for smaller subgroups and individuals, who work on different projects. One of them links with schools in the area. We are helping to run an air pollution monitoring project with St Margret's School and support Manley Park School with road closures on car-free school days. Another group works on tree planting and has established links with the British Muslim Heritage Centre to advise them on planting native species in the large grounds.

We welcome diversity and want to enable everyone to campaign on what is most meaningful to them whilst sharing support and knowledge.

We link with Chibombo People’s Climate Action in Zambia who plan to plant a million trees and reforest their area. Their district is already experiencing the devastating impacts of climate breakdown with alternating floods and droughts. Financial support from the UK helps the community to adapt. Working together creates hope; for the residendents of Chibombo for their local area and for us being part of what they are doing raises global awareness and connectedness.

Support Chibombo!
