On behalf of the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership, CAfS has been awarded £2.5 million from the National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund, for a five-year Zero Carbon Cumbria project. This includes a Youth Climate Action Programme, to support, empower and skill up young people in Cumbria to have their voices heard and to influence those in power to listen and act.

The Youth Climate Action Programme includes a series of annual Youth Climate Summits with schools across Cumbria, bringing children, young people and teachers together. Youth Steering Committees will help set priorities for the summits including the topics covered and the format of each summit.

As part of our overarching objective to help young people articulate their hopes and concerns for the environment and their own futures, we require a contractor to help organise and deliver the youth climate summits in 2022, 2023, 2024 and 2025.
