A hub of student activity on climate change

Swap and Reuse Hub Co-operative share thoughts on winning Climate Challenge Fund Awards waste category.

We are delighted to share the fourth in a series of five short films, to celebrate the winners of the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Awards.

The CCF Awards took place at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh on 1 November and celebrated the achievements of CCF projects running from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017.

The Waste Category Winner was The Edinburgh Creative Reuse Hub, a project run by The Swap and Reuse Hub Co-operative, in Edinburgh. We were pleased to speak with Olivia Nathan and David Somervell who told us more about the project and shared their feelings on winning the award.

The Edinburgh Creative Reuse Hub was led by the student community in Edinburgh, to increase awareness on sustainability issues and solutions and to create ways for the community to make big carbon savings. Based at the SHRUB Coop, 13 Guthrie Street. The CCF Awards Panel commended the project for showcasing excellent and innovative participative approaches to governance and project delivery, building community capacity and working collaboratively with numerous partners to maximise impact.

Watch out for the final film featuring the CCF Awards Panel Choice winner next week. In the meantime you can find out more about all the winners and shortlisted nominees through the CCF Awards webpages.

The CCF is a Scottish Government grants programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful, which provides funding and support for community groups to tackle climate change through community-led projects that reduce local carbon emissions.
