6 Community action cycle

The UK strategy for sustainable development envisaged the creation of a citizen’s environmental network. The idea is to link individuals and groups to help remove mindsets against action in order to engage them, through skilling, in projects for local environmental improvements. Essentially, the network draws in help from government and know-how from other groups and organisations and provides feedback from stakeholders to the providers of skills and information. Therefore central to a community action cycle is a toolkit for organising planning, recording and communication.
