Changing the Planet
Global Action Plan aims to inspire people to become ‘change makers’. We equip individuals and communities with knowledge and skills to develop solutions to the environmental and climate crises.
We deliver programmes for community groups, schools and businesses, in areas ranging from environmental education and climate action, to global citizenship, the Sustainable Development Goals and community transformation.

Our programmes are evidence-based and designed to help people overcome barriers to change. We provide targeted support to communities, schools and businesses, to encourage smart and effective citizen solutions to the climate and biodiversity crises.
We believe that all of us can make a difference, through the choices we make - that is why we focus on assisting people, helping them discover their power to effect change, and enabling them to develop tangible actions that lead to lasting attitudinal development.
