Twelve exciting community projects in South Cambridgeshire, aimed at reducing carbon emissions and engaging communities on climate change, are set to receive grant funding totalling £120,544 from the District Council

The Zero Carbon Communities grants, awarded by South Cambridgeshire District Council, are part of its vision to help the district become net zero carbon by 2050, to create a greener future for local people.

This is the fourth round of grants since they were established in May 2019. More than £400,000 has been allocated to 61 different grass roots projects including campaigns and awareness-raising around reducing carbon emissions, tree planting, energy efficient heating and lighting, food production and distribution, and waste reduction.

The newly announced projects for the coming year focus on activities to reduce carbon emissions and reliance on fossil fuels, encourage behaviour change towards low carbon lifestyles. Projects include cookery sessions to reduce food waste, a mobile tool-loan library, an e-bike rental scheme plus eco-friendly lighting and heating measures in community buildings.
