The Council recognises that local communities must work in partnership to tackle the environmental challenges we are all facing. Tackling climate change is one of the key aims of the Council’s 2019-2030 Climate Change Action Plan 2019-2030 (.pdf | 4.9mb) and the grants will support local young people through their schools, to make a difference for the future.
Cabinet member for Climate Change, Cllr Kenyon said, “We are pleased to support our local schools again this year to help tackle climate change. By educating our children about the importance of recycling, sustainable living and thinking about the effects our lives have on future generations, we can help our district to become cleaner and greener. The grants will support some great projects and initiatives, and build on the enthusiasm and interest the pupils clearly have in addressing climate change.”
