First of all, a HUGE congratulations to the Climate Challenge Fund winners and runners up, Cosmic Kitchen and The Sustainable Cycling Symposium. Reducing meat consumption and our reliance on vehicles are both important steps towards a sustainable future, and we can't wait to see these projects flourish. Well done to both teams!

We were aiming for the big prize, but we're delighted to have won third place and £7500 in funding from Plymouth City Council to help us open one of the UK's first high street Climate Hubs. 

We are now 33% towards our goal after less than 1 week!!!

You have helped us raise over £21,000 already! Our next step is to raise the next £12,500 to reach 50% of our goal, putting us in a position to apply for £30,000 in match funding from Plymouth City Council.

You can help us reach that goal by:

1. sharing our updates
2. telling people about the project
3. connecting us to people, businesses or funders who might be interested in supporting the project with a donation.
4. connecting us to potential partners

What this event has shown is there is already a wealth of knowledge, energy and ideas waiting to be unleashed to help us transition to a climate friendly future, and there has been for some time. What has been the missing ingredient? What pedals do we have to push to turn this energy into movement? 

Our vision is a network of city centre Climate Hubs across the UK that can act as learning and outreach centres, putting sustainable citizenship in the heart of our high streets. Places where we can educate people about the importance of plant based cooking and human powered journeys, empower people to become agents of change, and promote local businesses and projects like Cosmic Kitchen and The Sustainable Cycling Symposium. 

Just as the conservation movement looks to rewilding our landscapes, we want to rewild our high streets and communities, empowering a vibrant, diverse ecosystem of people, organisations, campaigns and businesses, enabling collaboration, healthy competition, and the cross pollination of ideas. 

This is the missing ingredient. This is the human powered journey we need. 

So thank you once more for helping us bring this vision one step closer to reality. 

Don't forget to keep sharing the project with your networks, keep connecting us with potential partners, and help us keep those donations coming in!
