Sustainable Community Action aims to link up community and personal action for sustainability worldwide.


Local, personal and global - It's about local sustainability - any size area from local community to the whole planet, but in a way which interconnects the personal and the global.


  • Now. This stuff matters. Some would say it's urgent. If you can help, do it now. Your planetary community needs you!

We began 6/12/04, but there's massive potential for further development.
