West of Scotland Regional Equality Council (WSREC)

West of Scotland Regional Equality Council (WSREC) works with minority ethnic communities in Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire highlighting the issues around climate change and how to effectively reduce carbon emission, through it’s CCF funded project ‘Cook, Grow, Sew and Change’ . The project encourages minority ethnic communities to adopt a low carbon lifestyle through measures such as, energy efficiency, low carbon food, zero waste textiles, growing food in urban spaces and eco driving. The project’s vision is to:

Embed awareness of climate change within minority ethnic groups, and capacity build the groups to take ownership.

Support communities to take action through developing and cascading the knowledge of  carbon reduction activities.

Support communities in lowering carbon emissions, adopt long term behaviour change , and have a legacy of sustainable lifestyles.
