Welcome to FalCAN, the Falmouth-focused community group with an important mission: “To initiate and collaborate in activities that our community can take in response to the climate emergency through education, sharing of best practices, and advocacy of impactful policies.”

FalCAN Steering Committee on Zoom, Fall 2021

Who We Are

We are Falmouth residents who recognize the need for urgent action to address the worsening climate emergency. When our Town unanimously approved a Climate Emergency Declaration at its Spring 2020 Town Meeting, we got to work. As volunteers, we use our time, skills and talents to help Falmouth reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 or sooner.  We envision a vibrant, resilient and sustainable Falmouth for future generations.

We are a growing network and welcome your ideas and participation. Please contact FalmouthCAN@gmail.com for information.


This Earth Day, April 22, come see Common Ground,  winner of the Tribeca Film Festival Human Nature Award for solution-oriented environmental storytelling. Featuring Laura Dern, Woody Harrelson and others, this just released documentary Common Ground exposes the money, power and politics behind our current food system. At the same time Common Ground gives us hope by highlighting the positive stories of diverse farmers using regenerative agricultural methods that will help save our soils, grow healthier food and benefit the environment.  Daniela Leal of the Tribeca Film Festival says  “ Fighting against agrochemical business in favor of regenerative farming is presented as a clear, bipartisan necessity for the health of our country, its people, and our collective future.” 

Join Farming Falmouth and the Falmouth Climate Action Network for this special free screening, on Monday April 22,  6-8:30 PM at the Waquoit Congregational Church, 15 Parsons Lane, East Falmouth. Stay for a discussion about regenerative practices and local farming. Capacity is limited to 100, so please register by emailing: FalmouthCAN@gmail.com with the subject line:  Common Ground Registration.

  • FalCAN events and public meetings will be announced in the Falmouth Enterprise, on our Facebook page, and on online calendars.
  • Our Steering Committee meets the third Thursday of the month from 5:00 – 6:30, currently via Zoom. To join a meeting and get involved in FalCAN activities, please email: FalmouthCAN@gmail.com.

What We’re Doing

Working in small teams dedicated to a unified goal, we initiate and support actions that individuals and organizations in Falmouth can take to reduce our carbon footprint and improve the climate resiliency, health, and economic sustainability of our Town and its residents. We do this through education, advocacy and sharing of best practices.

Future FalCAN initiatives may include: a Climate Book Discussion Group, vegetarian and vegan cooking demos, community gardening, electric vehicle car show and more. All we need is you!
