Plan your CCF project

Successful community action on climate change starts with good planning. 

All Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) projects seek to change people's behaviour, encouraging and supporting them to adopt low carbon behaviours.  Shifting Normal is an approach that aims to help you change things for the better by bringing together academic research on behaviour change with learning from successful community projects. You can find more information about how you should use Shifting Normal to plan your project via the 'Shifting Normal' section below.

Clearly defining the change you intend to bring about from your project, and having a plan to measure that change, are crucial ingredients for securing funding and running a successful project.  You can find a video guide and further resources to support you develop outcomes and measure the difference your project is making in the 'Plan your outcomes' section.

You can also find information and resources that will help you to plan a successful CCF project organised by theme of project below.
