Led by Middlesbrough Environment City this five-year project seeks to create sustained changes in individual community and organisational behaviours across the town and increase actions on tackling climate change. The project will work across the areas of sustainable food transport domestic energy use waste and natural environment aiming to raise greater awareness of sustainable living and help to reduce the town�s carbon footprint. This will be achieved through a whole-system and distributed leadership approach which looks to influence and act at all levels. The project will place particular focus on empowering young people as well as communities across the town to raise their voice in addressing climate change; particularly those who are most impacted but least resilient. Through a combination of education awareness-raising and increased individual involvement in climate action they aim to demonstrably increase the already well-established grassroots movement across the town to reduce Middlesbrough�s carbon footprint.
