The Climate Action Fund will support communities in the UK to take local action on climate change.
These communities will stand as beacons of what is possible when people take the lead on climate change. With our support, they will share their learning and engage with others to build a broader movement of change across the UK.
We will support community-led, local partnerships that will drive change not only within but also beyond their community, to:
- Reduce their carbon footprint sustainably
- Increase participation in community-led climate action.
Currently, we are gathering information about what local community-led climate action projects are already happening or being developed across the UK.
The fund will open for applications in Autumn 2019.
We aim to announce the first awards in the first half of 2020.
We expect to give between 10 and 15 awards to begin with. Learning from these first awards will feed into further funding rounds, which we will announce later.
