Abstract

The article discusses the challenges presented by climate change to environmental activism and community action in Great Britain. It states that most national governments have acknowledged that climate change is a public policy issue which demands immediate attention. It mentions that the increased interest on climate change has resulted to the formation of new organisations and new forms of action within the environmental movement. It notes that climate change has presented more challenges than opportunities for the national environmental nongovernment organizations (ENGOs).
