Chinese Climate Action Project

Chinese Community Development Partnership (CCDP) is delighted to announce the award of a grant totalling £98,699.83 from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) to run the Chinese Climate Action Project aiming to help the Chinese community in Glasgow to tackle climate change until March 2019.

The Chinese Climate Action Project will offer free support to help people save home energy, save car fuel, reduce household waste, as well as supplying information on how to reduce carbon footprint and climate change.

The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support for community groups to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.

David Gunn, Climate Challenge Fund Manager at Keep Scotland Beautiful said:

“We congratulate Chinese Community Development Partnership for securing funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and encourage the local community to take advantage of support available through the Chinese Climate Action Project.

“We look forward to supporting Chinese Community Development Partnership as they implement their project and empowering many more communities to take action on climate change. We see it as part of our work to make Scotland clean, green and sustainable.”

The CCF has awarded 1,097 grants totalling £101 million to 658 communities since its introduction in 2008, for projects involving energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency.
