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.

Funding opportunities for Climate Change projects

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.

Food supply and biodiversity

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.
