Climate Action Fife
Created: 01/10/2020, Updated: 20/01/2021
Fife Communities Climate Action Network has announced that it is now part of a new Fife-wide partnership project to tackle climate change in Fife. Climate Action Fife is the first project in Scotland to be funded by the National Lottery Community Fund’s new Climate Action Fund.
From the 01 October 2020, the Network will be working alongside Fife Council, Fife College and Greener Kirkcaldy (the lead partner) to pilot a range of exciting activities to build capacity in communities across Fife to take action on climate change, engage people from all backgrounds and sectors, tackle carbon emissions and deliver ambitious longer-term plans. This YouTube video shows what the Network is currently up to.
Project activities will take place over the next 18 months. They include:
climate change communications, training and engagement events;
behaviour change activities encouraging climate-friendly businesses, climate-friendly homes and gardens, climate-friendly food and climate-friendly holidays;
studies into the potential for a Fife community renewable energy project, a community tree planting strategy and a community cycling manifesto; and
testing different approaches to getting more community groups across Fife involved in action on climate change.
