Planet positive ideas for you to get behind.

Cornwall Council and Crowdfunder teamed up to find green initiatives who are responding to the climate emergency.

The below projects have been chosen to get a portion of £30,000 in match funding (up to £5,000 per project) from Cornwall Council to go towards a crowdfunding campaign.

Entries for the Cornwall Climate Challenge are now closed

But if you have an idea on how to tackle the climate emergency in Cornwall you can still set up a project and start crowdfunding as part of #BackTheFuture.

What is match funding?

When you hit a certain target in raising money for your idea, one of our amazing partners will match the amount raised with their own donation - effectively DOUBLING the money raised!
