Braunston CAN was formed in December 2019 following a public forum organised by Daventry District Council to discuss the climate emergency. A cross-party panel of three District Councillors wanted to hear people’s views on the actions that the District Council, Daventry Town Council, parish councils, voluntary organisations and residents can take to reduce our carbon footprint. Nine residents from Braunston attended.
We are independent of any council or group; we lobby councils and other bodies for policies to enable us all to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We link with groups and individuals in Braunston to promote actions that will reduce the impacts of climate change. We share information to make it easier to reduce Braunston's carbon footprint.
