Communities across Glasgow are invited to take part in Creative Climate Futures, a new project to support local climate action over the next two years.
Creative Carbon Scotland is working on Creative Climate Futures with project lead, sustainability charity Sniffer, and partners Community Land Scotland, Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector, the Scottish Communities Climate Action Network and Glasgow City Council. Between now and September 2023, they are inviting community organisations to express interest in taking part in the project.
There are two opportunities for community organisations to take part:
– As one of two “pioneer” neighbourhoods:
From Autumn 2023, the project partners will work with community organisations and embedded artists in two Glasgow neighbourhoods. Community organisations in these neighbourhoods will be offered support from the project partners, alongside funding of up to £80,000 to support staff and project costs, to co-design climate ready futures, and identify and act on local priorities.
– Through a city-wide learning, training and capacity sharing programme, starting in 2024:
The programme will support community organisations across the city to act on their local priorities.
This project will prioritise working with communities in Glasgow that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
