In January this year the Climate Action Network West Midlands (CANWM) was launched. Its project goals: “to support and encourage better links and communication between community/environmental groups and activists in order to increase engagement in climate change at community level in the region” (See https://ourbirmingham.wordpress.com/2018/01/27/further-faster-together-for-climate-action-project-launch/)
