Low Carbon Lochaber 2020 – 22

Climate Challenge Fund

Lochaber Environmental Group (LEG) have secured funding for the next two years through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) for our new project Low Carbon Lochaber.

Low Carbon Lochaber will build on the successes of our previous CCF project Go Grow and Glow, and will continue to focus on energy efficiency, active travel and local food production.  We will continue to offer home energy surveys, and we now have a bike library and bike tool library, as well as running the Bike Kitchen bike repair workshops and guided E bike rides. The local food producers group, Food Lochaber, will be developed further and growers will be supported with the purchase of a small tractor and tools.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our events and workshops as soon as it is safe to do so.

The Climate Challenge Fund is a Scottish Government grant programme that is managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

Since the Climate Challenge Fund was introduced in 2008, 622 communities across Scotland have been awarded grants totalling £85.8 million to run community-led projects that reduce local carbon emissions, improve their local areas and help them adapt to the impacts of climate change.
