Cast your vote for which projects should receive a share of the £375,000 Dundee Climate Fund!
Launched by Dundee City Council, the Dundee Climate Fund has been set-up to support community-led climate change projects with Dundee residents voting to decide how the budget will be spent. The £375,000 fund will support projects that relate to one or more of the following themes; community engagement; energy; resilience; transport; or waste.
Every Dundee resident will be able to ‘spend’ the full budget across various projects, voting on as many of the projects as they like until they’ve used all of the fund. Once voting has finished the projects will be ranked, matched to the available funds, and the projects with the most votes will receive the funds to bring their project to life.
With projects including everything from energy advice programmes to a community toolbox, what will you be voting for?
Projects from our Amps supporters:
Friends of Fairmuir hope to invest more into the continued development of Fair Growing Green. They’d like to receive funding to build more planters and polytunnels, a tea/coffee shack and a mud kitchen for children!
Shaper/Caper are proposing the development of a new touring schools show for young people called ‘The World is My …’ which will explore the climate crisis through human impact and inspire positive action.
The Maxwell Centre and Garden have big plans to make food growing more accessible to everyone in Dundee! They’re looking to implement a new Dundee food growing map and event calendar, create a tool and seed library, and work on a series of youth-led events.
Transition Dundee hope to increase the amount of food saved from going to waste in and around Dundee. They plan to start a Gleaning Group to salvage surplus food from farms, invest in a second-hand electric van to expand their reach, and develop further events to increase community engagement.
The Dundee Sound Collective plan to partner with NEoN Digital Arts to lead a series of six free soundwalks and field recording workshops around Dundee, focusing on the hidden details of local environments.
