Competition time! Plymouth Climate Challenge LIVE

Projects that could help Plymouth play its part in tackling climate change are being asked to pitch for £15,000 in prize funding at an exciting one-off event.

The Council is keen to hear about projects which bring environmental benefits to the city and to build on the work already happening through its climate change action plan.

If you’re a group, business or organisation with a cracking idea to help address climate change, the Council wants to hear from you. It could be a plan to tackle waste, improve a green or blue space, a grow-your-own project or something to do with sustainable energy.

Not only will the 10 shortlisted projects receive a guaranteed £250 prize pledge to go towards a crowdfunding campaign and receive coaching from Crowdfunder UK, the three projects that raise the most money will go on to present their idea to a panel of industry experts at the ‘Plymouth Climate Challenge Live Final’ as well as receive a further £2,500 prize-funding each.

The winner at the final will also receive an additional £5,000 prize-funding award to go toward their crowdfunding campaign. The competition opens for entries on 14 September and closes on 5 October at midday.
