Be part of something bigger...
The climate crisis isn’t something we can tackle alone.
Once the penny drops about the seriousness of the situation we’re in, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. This is where FACE groups come in...
Being part of a group, no matter how small, brings support from fellow members, from your local network, and from the growing parent and family climate movement across the world. It allows us all to scale up every individual action we take, and gives us the power we need to make change happen fast.
Small groups based around schools and neighbourhoods tend to work really well, especially for busy parents and carers. If you see people from your group in your everyday life, on the school-run or in the street, it’s easier to fit climate action around other commitments. Everyone brings the time and skills they can spare, and we all learn from each other along the way.
How FACE can help
FACE can help a new group get off the ground by hosting welcome and planning meetings, sharing our experiences, and organising training workshops.
We can also link people up with an existing group, or amplify what your established group does through our network.
FACE can provide you with a logo to say you’re a member of the network, but all groups choose their own names, remain independent and operate however they like.
On your side, we ask that you keep in touch with us as much as you can so we can learn from each other, and abide by our values of inclusive climate action.
What you focus on is up to you, but we can help you figure that out. We find it useful to break actions down into six areas that always need work;
Energy, Transport, Food, Consumption, Communication and Nature Regeneration.
Individual actions in these areas are easy to think of, like cycling instead of driving, planting a tree, or cooking in a climate-friendly way. But being part of a group enables you to scale up these kinds of actions to a community and a political level, and that’s when we see real change
