About Cap & Share

The 'Cap & Share' proposal on this website is equivalent to a similar proposal called 'Cap and Dividend', but applied globally (for more details, see the Alternatives and Variants page of this website).

Cap & Share is an idea, not an organisation. It is being promoted by various groups including Feasta, Carbon Share, and Cap Global Carbon, and there are many other groups such as the Citizens' Climate Lobby, promoting similar ideas.

This website was originally set up by the campaigning group which promoted Cap & Share in the UK between 2006 and 2014, and which produced the book "Sharing for Survival" (for details of this work, see the History of C&S page). We are keeping this website available as a source of information about Cap & Share; it is now maintained by Alison & Laurence Matthews.

Most members of the campaigning group are still active in related areas, so if you have any questions or comments, would like to know more, or are interested in helping to spread the word wherever you are, then please get in touch (see the Contact page).
