The Road to Carbon Reduction
Peebles CAN have secured a share of funding made available through the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF). Peebles CAN have been awarded a CCF grant totalling £147,896.88 over 2 years.
The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme managed by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support to help community-led organisations in Scotland tackle climate change through projects that reduce local carbon emissions.
Our project, The Road to Carbon Reduction, will offer free support to help Peebles and surrounding towns to reduce carbon emissions through carbon literacy education and practical activities. The project will facilitate discussion about climate change by hosting Skill Shares and community meals focused on carbon literacy, and will increase understanding of climate change in the local community through promoting journey sharing, eco driving courses, promoting alternative active travel and growing food for local consumption.
