Your community and climate change
Want to take action on climate change in your community? We have a range of training, resources and information to help you.
We have supported over 1,100 community climate change projects, from Shetland to the Scottish Borders though our management of the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF).
Our film shows how the CCF has helped community-led organisations across Scotland take local action on climate change over the last decade.
CCF projects have demonstrated a wide range of creative community-led approaches to reducing emissions from travel, buildings, food and waste. With trusted local people in the lead, they have created thousands of opportunities to help local people across Scotland to understand the climate emergency and take action at individual and community level.
Find inspiration for your own community by looking through our library of case studies, reports and films that highlight effective community action from across Scotland.
Funding and training
You can apply for funding from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund to help you research and develop your own community climate project.
We have free Climate Emergency Training for community leaders available to book now, plus an opportunity to apply for support to create a Community Climate Action Plan. This training and support is part of the Community Leader Climate Project that is funded by the Scottish Government.
You can also pledge the support of your community group to play its part in responding to Scotland's climate emergency.
