The Big Climate Conversation Community Fund
This fund is now closed.
Impact Funding Partners were delighted to manage The Big Climate Conversation Community Fund (BCCCF) on behalf of the Scottish Government.
On the 7th August we launched The Big Climate Conversation Community Fund to assist community organisations host workshops, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Targeted at small community groups, who are not primarily environmentally focused, the fund allowed us to hear from those who have been less engaged and therefore typically underrepresented in the climate change debate to date.
Organisations followed a Scottish Government 'How to Guide' as a structure to their community conversations, discussing and answering questions around climate change. The groups were able to provide additional feedback and focus on certain areas of specific interest, giving them flexibility with their conversations.
Grants of up to £300 were available. The Scottish Government provided £17,770.22 to 61 community groups to deliver 71 conversations right across Scotland.
The Scottish Government has completed analysis of all the feedback that they received from the workshops and the final Report of Findings from the Big Climate Conversation has now been published alongside a companion Technical Annex. Both of these reports are available via the following links:
