Copy The Future

Can you picture a carbon zero world? Submissions for Picture This: are now open! Find out more...

Carbon Copy is a UK charity, inspiring big-thinking local action on the climate crisis.

We’re here to help you discover what’s happening in your local area, to share and celebrate low-carbon success stories, and for you to showcase your own brilliant examples. Things that will be normal in the future already exist in some places today. A better world for all is in reach, if we replicate these initiatives everywhere. We invite you to take a look and copy the future.
