Greenspace Scotland will work with youth groups to develop and pilot a new project that focuses on local actions to achieve net zero targets, including climate resilience and renewable energy.
Rowlands is a youth project based in Selkirk. They are providing ingredients and recipes to local families during lockdown and have also created ‘Radio Rowlands’ which keeps young people throughout the Scottish borders connected.
The Matthew Tree Project supports those who have fallen into crisis. They’ll use the grant to install a new kitchen so that they can cook surplus perishable food. This will enable them to provide a wide variety of healthy meals to their local community in Bristol, while also reducing food waste.
We believe it’s important that during unprecedented times, communities pull together and help one another wherever they can. We’re proud to be working with seven brilliant partners who can support the needs of our local communities and enable them to build back better in its aftermath. OVO volunteers will be right there alongside them as soon as we can to provide valuable support.
