About Us

We are a network of people and projects in Carlisle, that want to make our city more sustainable for ourselves and for following generations. We wish to help create a peaceful, vibrant, resilient future based on common sense, ecological wisdom and social justice.

We will do this by:

Increasing awareness of local and global issues surrounding Climate Change and Peak Oil.

Helping to reducing Carlisle’s overall Greenhouse Gas emissions and dependence on Fossil Fuels.

Whilst we do this, we will take every reasonable step to minimise the Greenhouse Gas emissions resulting from our groups’ activities.


Sustainable Carlisle is incorporated as an IPS (an Industrial and Provident Society). A cooperative for the good of the community.

We are committed to making decisions by consensus process.

Please email info@sustainablecarlisle.org with any general enquiries.

We are supported by funding from the The National Lottery as part of the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership. Find out more about the ZCCP here:
