Climate Change goes Dynamic this weekend, followed by CCF gathering Oct 4th

The 2016 Climate Challenge Fund Gathering #ccfcommunity will take place on 4 October 2016 at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh.

Keep Scotland Beautiful organises the annual Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Gathering to celebrate and showcase the significant efforts of Scotland’s communities in contributing towards Scotland’s efforts to build a lower carbon future. The event also provides opportunities for CCF grant recipients to make new connections to support them in their climate change action. The event attracts up to 200 attendees of CCF grant recipients and community-led organisations from across Scotland, and is well worth attending, especially for those interested in CCF funding.

SCCAN will be at the conference giving a talk on our recent collaborations in Malawi. We will also be at the interactiveclimate change exhibition at Dynamic Earth. It is open for visitors 1-3 October and will form the marketplace of the conference on the 4th. David, SCCAN steering group member, says: “The CCF Gathering is a tremendous opportunity for community organisations actively campaigning / advocating for local action on climate change to meet together and swap ideas.  Recommended for groups thinking of getting involved too!”  Hope to see you there!
