£5.5 million for Scotland’s Climate Action Hubs

22.05.2024 | jemma

An announcement this week confirmed that communities will receive a share of up to £5.5 million Scottish Government funding to help reduce their emissions and improve resilience in the face of climate change.

The funding, for 2024-25, will support Scotland’s network of 20 Community Climate Action Hubs, which encourage and support climate action. Based across Scotland, the Hubs have supported a range of projects bespoke to their area, including on local energy generation and flood mitigation.

Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero and Energy Màiri McAllan said: “Climate action should be locally appropriate and locally driven. Our communities are uniquely placed to shape and drive forward the transition to low carbon and climate resilient living and we want to empower people to take the action in their own communities that’s right for them.

“That is why we are proud to continue to support our hugely successful framework of regional climate hubs, including Forth Valley & the National Park Climate Action Hub which will provide a vehicle for communities to come together and engage in collective grass-roots action.”

More information on how our Climate Action Hub is working with communities across Clackmannanshire, Falkirk, Stirling and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park can be found on our website.

To read about how some of our colleagues in Climate Action Hubs across other parts of Scotland have been using their funding and working with their own communities, take a look at this BBC article from Tuesday 21 May.

We are delighted to expand our offerings and continue to work both with these other regional Climate Action Hubs, with our community partners and groups, and with Scottish Government to reach Net Zero goals.
