    How it works

Why a Network?

The climate emergency and ecological crisis are forcing us to act now. Not at the next election, not in the next year, not tomorrow: now.

The world’s climate scientists (through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) say 50 to 70 per cent of climate solutions begin at the local level. It is where we have won major battles: stopping the Energy East pipeline, halting shale gas exploration, creating new bike paths and building community gardens. It is where the most profound social and ecological change takes place, alongside other citizens who share common values.

Future Ground Network exists to offer training and resources to emerging and experienced local grassroots groups to amplify their impact on the issues that matter most to their communities. The network also helps connect and unify groups throughout the environmental movement, making coordination and large-scale mobilization possible.

Our vision

Future Ground Network supports local groups to realize their own progressive goals and collaborate with each other. The network connects groups to large scale social and environmental justice campaigns to influence all levels of government and build sustainable communities from the ground up.
