Getting our places Fit for the Future

The Fit for the Future Network will allow leading sustainability experts and energy champions across charities and land-owning organisations to learn from each other and share best practice about how to reduce their carbon footprint.

Starting your own low carbon community?

We've put together 5 key recommendations for setting up your own project. Read our insight into why and how people are motivated to take part in community projects.

Clean energy canals

As the guardians of Scotland's historic waterways, Scottish Canals are looking for new ways to keep them sustainable. So they came to our Fit for the Future network for some advice.

Energy Busters

It was celebratory cups of tea and cake all-round as 399 schools crossed the finish line of our five-year scheme with Norfolk County Council to become Energy Busters.

Brothers in alms

An architectural and historical gem in central London, the Charterhouse, an almshouse that's home to 42 Brothers, has joined the Fit for the Future Network as it seeks to make its buildings more energy efficient and prepared for the years to come.

Low Carbon Villages

In our Low Carbon Villages (LCV) project, we worked with two Trust-owned villages (Coleshill in Oxfordshire, and Cambo on our estate at Wallington, Northumberland), to tackle the disillusionment and helplessness that many people feel about climate change. Through a process of engagement over a three-year period, LCV aimed to develop positive and practical solutions that could set villagers on a journey to low-carbon living.
