Coal Action Network
The Coal Action Network supports local residents, autonomous groups and individuals with information and experience to take collective action against the exploitation of coal.
Coal Action Network have worked with a large number of local groups fighting planning applications. By working together they are stronger and more able to see off big business which threatens or local areas and ecosystems in a wider sense.
CAN believe that action needs to be taken given the urgency of the climate crisis and the human and environmental costs of coal, problems which governments and industry are unable to solve. They, therefore, work with affected communities for a just transition towards a sustainable and coal-free future.
They seek to link up affected communities across the UK and beyond and work with other groups fighting extreme energy projects.
