Climate Challenge Fund

The Scottish Government has allocated £18.8m to support community-led projects which tackle the global threat of climate change by reducing carbon emissions. This significant new funding will place an emphasis on community capacity building and decision-making by local people

Scottish Government

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing us today. Scotland is being affected as other parts of the world are. However, Scotland can be part of the solution as well as part of the problem.

Overwhelmingly, scientists, economists and politicians agree that climate change is caused by our everyday activities. People are emitting large amounts of carbon dioxide and other gases that contribute to climate change and as a result we are trapping more of the sun’s heat and the planet is getting hotter.

There are lots of things we can do as individuals to reduce our carbon emissions but if we act together by working as communities we can do even more.

The Climate Challenge Fund is here to help communities make a real difference by significantly reducing their carbon emissions.
