Climate Action North is a community interest company run by Sharon Lashley, Jennifer Clair Robson and Julie Harrison. We’ve worked independently on a wide variety of climate change issues, each for over a decade, and decided to pool our knowledge and experience to take action and drive change.

Our projects for action on the climate crisis, climate emergency, and the environment in the North of England include: Pollinator Parks, rewilding advice and events, litter picking and beach cleans and working with businesses in the context of the climate emergency.
