St Andrews Communities Working Together

Transition University of St Andrews and St Andrews Environmental Network (StAndEN) have joined forces to bring a unique initiative to the town and gown communities of the St Andrews area to reduce carbon emissions and to build community resilience. The St Andrews Communities Working Together partnership has been successful in securing funding  of £347,770 from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) for a three-year project. Over this time, the partnership will run projects that focus on energy use in homes, community gardens, consumption of sustainable foods, a local exchange trading scheme and engaging individuals in practical responses to climate change. The collaboration of town and gown celebrates and shares the wealth of knowledge and experience of the St Andrews community as a whole in tackling climate change. See here the full list of CCF-funded projects.
