Going Green Together
These subsidised carbon literacy courses are offered through the Going Green Together programme.
The programme supports voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and communities in Cumbria and the North East to take action on the climate emergency, support nature and biodiversity and ensure a just transition to a low carbon future for our communities.
It’s recognised that this organisations need support to understand the climate crisis, and how they can take action. That’s where Going Green Together comes in. It aims to help and encourage organisations to take the first steps in reducing their carbon emissions, giving them the tools to embed sustainability within their work.
Going Green Together is delivered by a partnership of the VONNE Climate Action Alliance (VCAA) members, VONNE, Cumbria CVS, CAfS, Genee, SmartCarbon and SIDE Labs, supported by the National Lottery Community Fund and County Durham Community Foundation.
For us at CAfS, this is a great opportunity to add our 20-plus years of emission reduction experience to this programme through events, workshops, training, resources and toolkits, access to tools and frameworks and development funding for new climate action projects with beneficiaries.
