Bearsted Climate Action Network

Holy Cross/New Way Bearsted

Bearsted CAN is about bringing together like-minded people from Bearsted and the surrounding area who want to work together to face the Climate and Ecological Emergency.  This is a community group for everyone.  The climate and ecological emergency is a huge challenge in every aspect of our society and it's happening right now.  It can feel overwhelming but we can start where we are - working together where we live - think global and act local.
