Green-minded groups urged to apply for part of £1m climate change funding

GREEN-minded groups are invited to apply for part of £1million in climate change funding.

The Green Shoots Community Challenge is for local schemes which will help address the climate emergency in Warwickshire.

Community and voluntary projects can apply by Monday May 17 with a maximum funding of £25,000 per project.

Warwickshire County Council environment spokeswoman Heather Timms said: “The Warwickshire Green Shoots Fund is an important step forward in our response to the climate change emergency this council declared in 2019.

“There is already lots of fantastic work going on within the council and our communities across the county to help reduce carbon footprints and minimise the effects we all have on our fast-changing climate.

“There can be few better demonstrations of our commitment to address this emergency than the sizeable sums of money made available to our communities as part of the Warwickshire Green Shoots Fund. I hope to see as many community groups as possible applying for funding for projects so that, together we can make Warwickshire the best it can be, sustainable now and for future generations.”
