Wellington City Council’s new Climate and Sustainability Fund recognises that partnership between Council and the community is crucial to addressing climate change, and that our communities possess the expertise and ingenuity to lead the way. This fund is one of the ways in which we aim to support and uplift this leadership.
We warmly invite anyone with a Wellington-based climate action initiative, project, or even just a seedling of an idea to attend the in-person Climate and Sustainability Fund Information Evening, which will be going ahead on Wednesday 27 July, 5:30pm-7pm, at two/fiftyseven (Level 2/57 Willis Street)
This session is an opportunity to:
learn more about the new Climate and Sustainability Fund and its first recipients
find out how to apply and what support is available throughout the process ahead of the next funding round (closing 27 October 2022).
ask questions and share your feedback or ideas.
To learn more about these events and register, please visit: Community support - Climate and Sustainability Fund information sessions - Wellington City Council
Accessibility: NZSL interpreters will be present at both the online and in person events. Access to the venue for the in-person event is flat from street level but requires use of a lift. We want all members of our community to feel welcome and able to participate fully in these events so please let us know if you have any accessibility needs we can support with.
If you are not ready to apply for the fund but want to learn more or understand what other support is available – we welcome you to come along or get in touch!
Please forward this email on to anyone you think might be interested and connect us with climate leaders in your community.
