The 2018 CCF Gathering celebrated a decade of the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and recognised youth contributions in this Year of Young People. The event also provided workshop learning opportunities and plenty of time to network with the CCF Community.
The CCF Gathering took place at Perth Concert Hall on 13 December 2018.
We extend a massive thank you to the Climate Challenge Fund Community for making the event such a success and for helping to celebrate a #DecadeOfCCF and Year of Young People 2018.
You can view webcast footage and films from the morning and afternoon plenary sessions below. Workshop webinar sessions are available to view here.
We were delighted that Minister for Rural Affairs and the Natural Environment, Mairi Gougeon provided a keynote address at the Gathering.
Celebrating success - VeloCommunities film
Bike for Good were the recipient of the 1,000th CCF Grant award for their VeloCommunities project. The session included presentations and a film to introduce how Creative Carbon Scotland are working with Bike for Good to document the VeloCommunities project and contribute to its activities that aim to widen access to cycling and help Glasgow to become a more sustainable city.
A Decade of CCF Film and Panel Discussion
This session commenced with the premiere of a short film in which a variety of CCF Community representatives voiced their thoughts on the past decade of the CCF. The film was used as the starting point for a panel discussion which brought together members of the CCF Community to discuss their highlights of the CCF, in addition to identifying challenges and hopes for the future.
The Climate Snapshots have become a regular feature of the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Gathering. We give CCF Grant Recipients six minutes and six PowerPoint Slides to tell us about their projects. This year the snapshot presentations demonstrated a variety of focuses on youth engagement from CCF Grant Recipients. A Panel discussion followed, with questions welcomed from the floor.
