Grants available for Great Big Green Week

Grants have been made available in Cumbria to help local community groups host events in their area during this year’s Great Big Green Week from 10th to 18th June this year.

The Great Big Green Week is a national campaign led by the Climate coalition. It aims to raise awareness of climate change and get more people involved in taking action to reduce their carbon footprint.

The week will include a range of celebratory events across communities in the UK, including things like, wildlife walks, films, talks, litter picks, forest school events, vegetable growing, as well as larger events to support sustainable business and sustainability festivals.

The funding can be use for things like venue hire, publicity, speaker expenses and other resources.

If you are part of a community group planning an event, or know of one which might be interested, you can get more info on how to apply at the Zero Carbon Cumbria website

And, more general information on The Big Green Week is available at the website dedicated to the event.
