Community Climate Coaches
Europe wide partnership which aims to develop a system to train, support and enable Community Climate Coaches (CCC) across Europe
Community Climate Coaches
CCC is an exciting program to train, support and enable Community Climate Coaches (CCCs) across Europe. During this project You have the possibility to engage in a personal CCC training and to attend CCC events in person and on-line.
Dissemination activities across the partnership’s extensive networks will provide benefits and access to the CCC project outputs, tools, good practices and to a great amount of references.
The purpose of the Community Climate Coaches project is to build and activate a Climate Coach practitioner network and movement for enabling and catalysing action-oriented, dialogue-based processes and pathways to resilience and regeneration.
The CCC Network will be active within, between and across communities through localisation of positive climate actions that feature inclusivity.
It will work with both the mainstream and the margins, integrating inner work and outer work, and identifying the conditions and levers for change

Are there any additional partners or funders connected to your initiative?
The CCC project partners are a mix of larger networks of community-led initiatives and smaller adult education providers. They have complementary expertise in community resilience, social innovation, collaborative working and climate action.
We offer a number of participation activities for individuals and groups who want to engage into climate action with their community. You do not need to be a professional coach to engage into the programm. You can be designing urban gardens, facilitating climate assemblies, hosting repair cafés, running ecosystem restoration camps or decolonization workshops. Equally you might support a community to generate and implement its own community climate action plan or community resilience plan.

Professional coaches who want to engage actively in climate action
The purpose of the Community Climate Coaches project is to build and activate a Climate Coach practitioner network and movement for enabling and catalysing action-oriented, dialogue-based processes and pathways to resilience and regeneration. Once activated by the project, this Climate Coach practitioner network will have the purpose of activating a systemic approach to expanding, deepening and accelerating Community Climate Action through the dissemination and use of tools, good practice, learning pathways and data gathering that together bring about ambitious levels of community change and positive action in response to climate change across Europe. (purpose to create activated communities supported by these coaches)
The CCC project will enable a growing network of Community Climate Coaches to deliver accessible and affordable learning and action. It will deliver the new role of Community Climate Coach, people who can maximise community engagement to deliver significant carbon reductions.
