Litter Action – online organising for community action

June 3, 2009

litteraction.org.uk is run jointly by CPRE and CleanupUK.  It’s designed to be a place that promotes and supports local community action on litter:

“At a local level, supporters of the campaign can get involved by organising their own litter pick or joining a local litter volunteer group through litteraction.org.uk. Supporters can pledge to Stop the Drop, joining CPRE in lobbying local authorities, government and other bodies legally responsible for keeping land litter-free. Through these various campaigning actions CPRE aim to demonstrate to Government and other authorities the strength of support behind Stop the Drop.”

You can search for a group near to your area, or set one up.

This kind of online resource to link local action with the wider issue and campaigning can be very sucessfull if done well — are there any examples you can point to?
