For most people, the phrase 'Caring for the World' means doing their best as a member of a community, a neighbourhood and a family to make Earth a better place to live for eveybody- particularly future generations.  
Nowadays we can no longer avoid the fact that the way we live our lives is affecting the planet.  To be effective, even in small ways, means behaving according to a plan.  The plnning process for an indivdual could be as simple as pinning 'to do' notes on the fridge door.  For a neighbourhood group concerned about crime, litter, or trees in the street, it could be organised in a diary or a PC spreadsheet.  For those wishing to act on their concerns about climate change, they may want to plan to reduce their carbon footprint or encourage their neighbours to do so. 
These web pages have been produced to demonstrate how to make plans for environmental improvements, which span  home-based energy saving to running a local nature reserve.  All follow the same simple standard logic of setting a  target and saying how and when it will be reached by monitoring progresss to measurable objective.
Most of the examples deal with improving local biodiversity, but the planning systems could be applied to manage any community issue.
