COIN is an action-centered, education-centered climate change charity, running a range of interesting projects. Our mission statement is that we seek to create a 'powerful and vocal community' able to push forward climate
change action and policies.
** Climate Change Speaker Training - day-long workshops for the public, giving them the materials and confidence to deliver carefully-put-together, thoughtful half hour talks on climate change to any
group they may chose;
** Action Groups - designed to enable groups of residents to take self-directed action on climate change, with other like-minded individuals;
** The Ecovation Initiative - bringing together a community if 'eco-renovators' to exchange info and best practice - see www.ecovation.org.uk;
** Speaker Events - e.g. in the past few months, Mark Lynas' booklaunch for 'Six Degrees';
** Climate School - intensive residential courses for all on climate change...
