Plymouth City Council is driven in their ambition to fulfil their city-wide climate emergency action plan and as part of the Plymouth Climate Challenge Live competition awarded one impactful project £5,000 in prize money.

Last year, seven shortlisted projects crowdfunded to make their ideas a reality and make a real difference to the city.

The three projects that raised the most money went through to the live final on 3 December and received an extra £2,500 from Plymouth City Council. These three finalists competed in the live final to impress a panel of judges who then awarded the winner £5,000 prize funding.

This campaign is part of Plymouth City Council’s response to climate change. To find out more about what the Council is doing please visit the Council’s website here.
