Somerset Climate Action Network seeks new directors

Somerset CAN is looking for new board directors to help our organisation grow and develop

• Are you passionate about moving rapidly towards a carbon neutral future?
• Could you offer your time and skills to accelerate the pace of change across Somerset?
We are a diverse network of people united by Somerset CAN’s Mission to catalyse systemic action to drive down carbon emissions across the County. Our approach is to promote collaboration between people, organisations, businesses and public sector bodies to increase the scope and effectiveness of policies and practices to reduce carbon emissions.

Somerset CAN has come a long way since it was launched in July 2019 – as shown in Somerset CAN Impact Report . As a result of the research and advice commissioned by Somerset Councils, we have built a reputation for sound advice and public engagement.

This is an exciting time to join the Board as we begin to plan and implement the next phase of our development. Our ambition is to aggregate actions by and with everyone involved, and so to boost the drive to a low-carbon, renewable society. 

The role of a director carries significant responsibility and time commitment but is immensely rewarding. As a director, you will draw on your skills and experience to shape and deliver the strategy for achieving our mission, to ensure that the resources are well managed and to enhance the long-term success of Somerset CAN.
We are looking for candidates who:

  • Fully support Somerset CAN’s mission and values
  • Can offer significant climate emergency related knowledge, skills and connections
  • Are able to contribute to organisational development and leadership
  • Are willing to give significant voluntary time to Somerset CAN’s affairs

Interested? If so, please write to tell me why and what you could bring to the work of the Board. If you would first like to know more about this opportunity or to discuss your interest informally with me or another director, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on . The deadline for receipt of nominations is 31st March 2021.

Steve Mewes
Board Chair
