A new study says that people involved in community carbon-saving projects have lower-than-average carbon footprints and are also more satisfied with their lifestyles. (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S2214629619302944?via%3Dihub)
The key ways that community projects support their members in reducing carbon footprints are by sharing knowledge, skills and practices, giving psychological support, adding to your social life and making sustainable practices the norm within the group and beyond.
These findings are equally true for people who join groups with a single focus, like a food or energy co-operative, and for those who are part of a broader, more comprehensive groups such as Transition Towns, or an ecovillage. The study shows just how important local and community projects are and how they contribute to making it fun and satisfying to go sustainable. (Credit : Carbon Savvy https://carbonsavvy.uk/solutions/)
