Empowering Communities: £1.5 million funding for green projects in the Northeast

Climate change is a global challenge that demands collective action at all levels of society. As we strive for a sustainable future, it is essential to empower communities and provide them with the necessary resources to make a positive impact in their own neighborhoods. We are thrilled to announce the second year of the Just Transition Participatory Budgeting Fund, a remarkable opportunity for communities to lead climate action projects that bring both social and environmental benefits to their local areas. 

The fund will once again be delivered through a partnership of three Third Sector Interfaces for the North East: ACVO, Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action, and TSiMoray a Climate Action Network (NESCAN Hub) and a voluntary organisation (Money for Moray). Each area has £500,000 to make available to third sector groups.

Supporting Community-Led Climate Action: The Just Transition Participatory Budgeting Fund is an initiative designed to foster community engagement and facilitate the implementation of grassroots climate action projects.

How to Get Involved: The Just Transition Participatory Budgeting Fund offers an inclusive platform for community groups to propose and implement climate action projects tailored to their specific needs. Whether it's renewable energy initiatives, sustainable transportation solutions, waste reduction programs, or any other project that contributes to a greener and fairer future, this fund is here to support your vision.

Grassroots community organisations can apply for up to £50,000 for capital funding for green projects that address climate change and improve sustainability as we work towards net-zero. Once the proposals are in, these projects will then be put to a public vote where voters will decide which projects they believe will offer the greatest contribution towards a carbon-neutral Aberdeenshire. 

The Just Transition Participatory Budgeting Fund is an incredible opportunity for communities to take charge of their own climate destiny. By channeling resources into projects that create a positive impact, we can build stronger, more resilient neighborhoods while contributing to the global fight towards net zero. Join us and our partners on this exciting journey towards a sustainable future by participating in the online information session and spreading the word to your community. Together, we can make a difference and inspire lasting change.

This capital funding is for the purchase of tangible assets.
