Community Planning Partnership Argyll and Bute
Climate Change Action Signposting Page
Welcome to this Climate Change signposting page. People throughout Argyll and Bute have been and are working hard to tackle many of the issues that affect Climate Change. We have pulled together links to other web pages that may be of interest. They highlight what partners, agencies, community groups and individuals are doing across Argyll and Bute to support the fight against Climate Change. Supporting and highlighting climate change is a key theme for the Community Planning Partnership.
We have created a funders search to highlight funding opportunities under the Climate Change heading
To help navigation we have grouped the activities into six headings.
- Positive Action
- Food supply and biodiversity
- Alternative power generation
- Reducing waste and Reuse
- Raising awareness and information
We have identified the following links to websites highlighting ways for you to get involved. They provide general information about climate change activity with opportunities to get involved.
Our natural environment faces significant threats from the climate crisis. The links here take you to websites that show, what is being done to try and overcome some of the effects challenging our long term future.
Biodiversity is vital to our wellbeing and key to our quality of life in Argyll and Bute. A healthy and stable environment is central to economic prosperity and the area’s desirability as a place to live, work and visit. The state of our biodiversity is a fundamental indicator of whether we are achieving a sustainable future for Argyll and Bute. Looking at our food supply chains can allow us to investigate growing local food helping to reduce food miles and maximise reuse and recycling.
Active travel is all about getting you moving from A to B in ways that don’t use fossil fuels. Active travel not only improves your health and wellbeing, but helps reduce your carbon footprint and saves you money. You can save money on your bills at the same time as reducing your carbon footprint. That can involve being more energy efficient, generating your own renewable energy, switching to a green tariff or insulating your home to keep the heat in. We’ve found these local links to things happening on the ground.
Recycling plastic, paper and other waste products is an incredible way to keep a lot of those items from ending up in our oceans or landfills. Argyll and Bute have many group working hard to make a difference. Just take a look at what’s going on.
Public awareness is important to increase enthusiasm, support and action, and mobilise local knowledge and resources. These links highlight local efforts and actions to raise awareness.
