New book published on addressing the climate crisis
The Place-Based Climate Action Network (PCAN) has published its first book Addressing the climate crisis: Local action in theory & practice in Open Access format. The publication brings together cutting-edge insights from over 30 authors which show how action can and is already being taken against climate change.
Addressing the climate crisis is split into 3 sections: 1. Community and Place in Local Climate Praxis; 2. The Spaces of Local Climate Action; 3. The Agents of Local Climate Action. It spans multiple levels of analysis, interrogating diverse perspectives and practices.
The Institute’s Senior Policy Fellow Candice Howarth, and co-Director of PCAN, was one of the books editors, alongside Matthew Lane and Amanda Slevin. At a time of climate and ecological breakdown the book’s editors say in their introduction: “this book offers hope, inspiration and analyses for multi-level climate action, spanning varied communities, places, spaces, agents and disciplines, demonstrating how the energy and dynamism of local scales are a powerful resource in turning the tide.”
