Major funding programme launched

CSE is partner in ’Our Environment Our Future’

10 November 2014

Our Environment Our Future is a Big Lottery-funded portfolio that will see £30m being invested across the UK to support young people (aged 11-24) to improve their local environments.

CSE is proud to announce that we are part of a consortium, led by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, supporting this work. Together, we’re looking for 25-35 projects to make up the portfolio, each receiving funding of around £750,000 to £1 million. These projects must scale-up or replicate a previous successful approach. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 17 December 2014.

In its consortium role, CSE will be providing advice to applicants during the development phase on influencing local policy and planning frameworks, and any climate change, energy or fuel poverty considerations for project delivery. This builds particularly on our PlanLoCaL programme and Low Carbon Localism projects.

We’ll also be playing an active role in supporting the Field Studies Council to develop the evaluation of the overall programme.
