Celebrating community action on climate change across Scotland
The Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) was launched in 2008 and over 1,150 projects across all 32 local authorities have been awarded CCF grants. Total CCF funding exceeds £111m.
The CCF has supported community-led organisations in Scotland to tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions. Previously funded projects have helped communities to reduce their reliance on car travel, cut waste, grow local food and lower energy use in homes and community buildings. Currently funded projects can be viewed here and case studies can be viewed here. The CCF is currently closed for new applications.
Keep Scotland Beautiful are delighted to be celebrating the impact of the CCF through this report and a film that share some of the wonderful stories of climate action and learning the fund has inspired, both at a community and individual level.
