Climate Change Makers

Climate change makers

This ambitious project brings together 11 residents from across the town on a peer-led learning journey around climate change and local solutions

The hope is that by empowering and enabling people to act in their communities, we can show what is possible, lead by those who know their community best.

Founded by Cheltenham Borough Council and match funded by Gloucestershire County Council, participants will go on a 6 month learning journey to understand the science and impacts of climate change and be empowered to act in their neighborhoods to make changes. 

Each participant is able to access a stipend to enable them to attend the sessions, and a funding pot for their project ideas is also available. A showcase in November will show friends, family and the local community what they’ve been learning and what their project ideas are so far.
