Scottish neighbourhoods accepted £3.2m for climate action: The Scottish Government has reported £3.2 million in funds to assist communities in tackling climate change & administer a green recovery due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Community Climate Asset Fund will back a total of 279 programs, that contain the delivery of electric bikes, food growing supplies to lower carbon emissions including glazing to improve energy efficiency.
Three of the benificiaries of the funding are Blood Bikes Scotland, Orkney Blide Trust & Fair Isle Primary School.
Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham stated: “Communities across the country are playing a vital role in responding to the pandemic crisis and in maintaining our resilience, our sense of spirit and our local support network.
“In what remains an exceptionally difficult time for us all, this funding is providing fast, tangible support to deliver long-lasting benefits to community based organisations while also helping them tackle climate change as we accelerate our just transition to a net zero society.
“I am particularly pleased that the successful recipients of the Community Climate Asset Fund come from right across the country, meaning many thousands of people will benefit from the projects and help play their part in ending Scotland’s contribution to climate change.”
