Welcoming Climate Week
Climate Week 2018 runs from 1-5 October and the Scottish Government has been celebrating successes and promoting action on low carbon behaviours through a range of activities. The week has again proved a great opportunity to showcase what communities are doing to help tackle climate change.
Climate Challenge Fund projects from across Scotland have supported Climate Week through a series of events ranging from learning about local food in Coupar Angus to creative upcycling in Lairg. Just a few of the projects involved include Forward Coupar Angus, The Gate Carbon Saving Project (Dundee), Aberdeen Aberdeen Eco-Green Future Project, East Sutherland Energy Advice Service and Lairg and District Learning Centre. You can find out more about Climate Week activities through the Sustainable Scotland Network website.
We were pleased to take part in Climate Week through partnering with Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise and hosting a stand at their Funding Fair on 3 October. Interest was high in both the Climate Challenge Fund itself and from individuals keen to learn more about climate change and actions they can take to help tackle it.
Welcoming a Greener Future is a Climate Challenge Fund project run by the Welcoming Association in Edinburgh. They have organised a weekend Climate Week Celebration which will take place on Sat 6th October 12-4pm at Bridgend Farmhouse in Edinburgh. Activities will include recycling / upcycling activities, arts and crafts for young people, plus bike rides and bike maintenance workshops with refreshments provided. Although the event focuses on supporting the Syrian community to take climate action, it is open to everyone with further information available by telephoning 0131 346 8577 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
