Who We Are

Bisley Eastcombe & Oakridge Climate Action Network (BisCAN)  is a community of groups and individuals in the Parish of Bisley-with-Lypiatt, which aims to mitigate the impact of climate change by reducing our local carbon footprint, and to aid nature recovery in our Parish. We share information, collect data, support each other in our efforts, and together develop projects to further these goals. We are part of the Transition Stroud CAN Forum and collaborate with other CANs. We hope to encourage the residents of our communities to lead lives that are healthy and happy while putting nature first. We are open to all residents of the Parish, and will be transparent and democratic in all we do.

Energy

Energy associated with home heating is estimated to contribute 28% of local emissions.  Therefore, it is a key area to tackle to help reduce emissions.  The  Energy pages provide ideas on reducing energy consumption in the home and advocates for adopting cleaner transport including cycling and public transport.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity, nature recovery and food are intrinsically linked to addressing the climate emergency at a local level.  We offer ideas and support to help nature recover which supports improved biodiversity.  We also offer ideas about how grow food and choose food products that are less carbon intensive.
