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. With Year of Young People, we are delighted to celebrate the contribution that young people make to the Panel.
You can find out more about some of the CCF projects led-by and involving young people in our case studies below.
