Event description

Description

The annual Climate Challenge Fund Gathering showcases and celebrates the significant efforts of Scotland’s communities in contributing towards Scotland’s efforts to build a lower carbon future.

Over the nine years that the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) has been operating we have been pleased to offer opportunities such as themed networks and the annual Gathering for the CCF Community to link-up, share best practice and celebrate together. At the CCF Gathering in 2016, we were again struck by the sense of community that there is between CCF funded projects, umbrella organisations, national charities and Government bodies, all working together to take action on climate change.

The CCF Gathering 2017 will showcase and celebrate a number of CCF initiatives and collaborations, that aim to help tackle climate change by capitalising upon the skills and experience of members of the CCF community.

The Gathering will be again webcast live with the ability for those watching the livestream to become involved by submitting questions. The sessions marked 'Live webcast' below will be covered.
