The advocate for this site is Denis Bellamy (Emeritus Professor of Zoology in the University of Cardiff). He set up SCAN and is researching ways of using the Internet to engage communities in living sustainably through long-term action plans and cross-curricular knowledge systems. SCAN's approach is to encourage teachers and their students at all levels of the education system to set up your own local rescue mission to make your neighbourhood a place where people love to live. Ideas on how to do this are discussed in the wiki pages entitled 'Check out your ecosystem'.
