Cornwall Council wants to fund projects in Cornwall who are committed to making a difference in the fight against climate change. This fund, led by your donations, will provide funding for projects or ideas that are helping tackle the climate emergency either through reducing carbon production; removing carbon from the atmosphere; environmental conservation activity; or increasing community resilience.
We want to support projects across the county that are working towards goals such as these:
- Reducing carbon emissions from households, businesses or organisations
- Promoting sustainable choices and behaviour change
- Creating new opportunities for renewable energy
- Supporting climate resilient communities and spaces
- Promoting the removal of carbon from the atmosphere through nature-based solutions
- ...and more!
Donations made here will go into this voluntary contribution fund, and then be allocated as funding for environmental projects in the future, enabling Cornwall to move closer to being truly "carbon neutral".
