Funding to tackle climate change
Posted: Tue, 31 Aug 2021 14:42
New funding programme. Opens: 1st September 2021
A £2.5 million funding programme available to voluntary and community organisations in the United Kingdom for small-scale projects to take action on climate change is set to open.
The Together for Our Planet programme aims to support the nurturing and development of local ideas, contributing to a legacy of ongoing climate action projects in hundreds of communities across the UK.
Funding is intended to support projects that focus on one or more of the following areas:
• Waste and consumption
• The natural environment
Projects will need to meet at least two of the following criteria:
• Support the development of longer-term climate action within communities
• Encourage communities to plan for the climate emergency - to consider what climate action could mean to them and why it matters
• Celebrate the importance of community-led climate action and encourage more people to get involved
• Build resilience in communities that are hardest hit by climate change
• Provide jobs, skills or training opportunities for communities which support climate action
Grants of £1,000 to £10,000 will be available.
Closes 18th November 2021.
