Callander Climate Change

A subgroup of the Callander Community Development Trust. In 2009 and 2011, we successfully applied for Climate Challenge Fund grants and these helped bring about whole range of projects from work on improving home insulation, which brought about a 502 tonne reduction in the community’s carbon footprint, to film nights and festivals, including a ‘Bike-tastic’ event at the primary school to raise awareness. A 10% reduction in journeys to school by car was also achieved in 2011/12 and a community orchard and raised beds for vegetable growing at the youth project have engaged people practically in local food.
