The Big Climate Conversation Community Fund

Impact Funding Partners is pleased to announce that The Big Climate Conversation Community Fund will be open for applications from Wednesday 7th August 2019.  The fund aims to support community and third sector organisations to engage with the Scottish Government’s Big Climate Conversation.


The Scottish Government is enabling public engagement events to have a nationwide conversation and discuss actions required to tackle the global climate emergency.


To ensure that the widest range of views from across Scotland are able to contribute, we are encouraging communities to hold their own workshops and contribute to the conversation.  The fund will help support community groups who otherwise would not be able to cover the expense of hosting a workshop.


The fund will support workshops held before the 31st October 2019 which support the aims of The Big Climate Conversation to engage all sectors of society on Scotland’s response to the global climate emergency.


Download the Scottish Government ‘How to Guide’ from our website which will give you step by step guidance on how to run your workshop, including what questions to discuss.  There are opportunities for you to be flexible with the format and how long each discussion lasts.  You can also feedback on other areas relevant to The Big Climate Conversation.  Please read the ‘How to Guide’ before applying.


Please see the attached information sheet or visit our website for further information about the fund, how much funding is available and how to apply.


Applications should be submitted using the online application form, which will be available from Wednesday 7th August 2019. The closing date is 21st October 2019.
