By now you should feel inspired and have your community map in hand. It's time to act.
Determine which community issue you’re going to tackle and now design and implement a plan to get it done. It's important to remember that biodiversity loss (animals), environmental inequity (people), and climate change (the environment) are interconnected. So when you are designing your project, consider how your actions will affect all three groups.
Types of actions to take include:
Inform the community of local sustainability issues.
Create, rehabilitate or maintain natural areas.
Inspire changes in consumer & lifestyle choices by offering sustainable alternatives.
Advocate local decision makers to raise awareness about your cause.
