Youth climate action
The Climate Challenge Fund is empowering young people to take action on climate change.
The Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) was launched in 2008 and has supported projects led-by and involving young people at youth groups, Student Associations and uniformed organisations, such as the scouts. These projects have reduced local carbon emissions, helping to tackle climate change.
All currently funded CCF projects across Scotland can be viewed here.
The CCF newsletter contains updates on funding and support available through the Fund, plus other sustainability and climate change news. You can register for the newsletter here. We also have a CCF Facebook Page and a CCF Twitter feed.
To continue the important involvement of young people with the CCF Grant Panel, we were been pleased to work with Young Scot who selected and trained four young people to sit on the Panel.
We were delighted to speak with Elaine Brown from Bright Green Business at our annual CCF conference and hear about opportunities for young people in the environmental sector. We work with Bright Green Business through the CCF Recruitment Service which provides qualified interns for CCF projects.
You can find out more about some of the CCF projects led-by and involving young people in our case studies below.
