Welcome and thanks for participating!

We're happy to share that we (a growing collective of communities and organisations across Cornwall) are working together to help communities take climate action, predominantly through connecting, sharing and supporting.  We are hoping to put a bid to the Lottery’s Climate Action Fund to enable countywide support and are trying to identify what stage communities are at and what they need to drive forward change at the speed and scale needed.

We’d love to hear more about what is going on in your community and would appreciate 5 minutes of your time in sharing this.

If you are interested in being kept informed about the bid, relevant events, or would like a conversation with some of the people pulling the bid together please let us have your contact details.    Your information will NOT be used for any other purpose.

Thank you!
