Footpaths is a grass roots community-based scheme, pioneered in the UK by Transition Leicester, providing a structured programme of activities to set personal goals and reduce our carbon footprint. It enables trained leaders to share knowledge on the practical steps involved, supported by a work book.

Project Drawdown Solutions is a very well researched global initiative to identify solutions to ways to 'drawdown' carbon that can be implemented at domestic, local or regional levels. The solutions either reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, or help in sequestering them from the atmosphere. 

Zero Carbon Britain is the flagship research project from the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), showing that a modern, zero-emissions society in the UK is possible using technology available today.
