The Coventry & Warwickshire Climate Action Partnership (CWCAP) put in a joint bid for lottery funding for a climate action community engagement programme to harness the community’s ideas and resources to achieve significant carbon reductions. The main delivery mechanism identified was a Coventry city centre hub. The CWCAP proposal was one of 650 unsuccessful bids, with only 15 being accepted in the first round. However the group will continue to work together to start to implement the core content of their lottery proposal for public and local community engagement.
The first stage of the CWCAP group was organising a Climate Change workshop which was held on 4 December 2019. The aim of the workshop was to help shape not only the bid for Climate Action Funding from the National Lottery for the region, but also to engage with the local community on climate change initiatives. The report from Ruth Shepherd who facilitated the workshop, details the recommendations and outputs which are based on the discussions within the workshop as a whole, and within table groups.
Several volunteers from the workshop have now formed a steering group to map out the next steps at progressing the project as much as possible working together irrespective of the National Lottery Climate Action Fund. The steering group will feed into a bigger discussion on the City’s Climate Change Strategy which the Council have started developing.
