Climate FORTH (Furthering Our Resilience Through Heritage) is a new project for the Inner Forth Futures partnership, initial scoping started in 2020. The aim of the project is to support communities, landscape (natural, built and cultural heritage) and economy around the Inner Forth region to build resilience to climate change and develop ways to take action. We will work with local people and businesses to decide how best to do this and where to deliver activity. We are seeking funding from the National Lottery Heriage Fund and others to develop activities during 2022. We hope to deliver work between 2023 and 2026.
We have produced a leaflet to tell you a bit more about our vision for the project, which you can download here.
Over the autumn 2020 we conducted a small series of online engagement events to hear directly from community organisations about what their concerns and priorities are for their landscape and their communities. Participants explored a vision for the future and discussed what might be needed to realise these visions. You can read more about our findings from the engagement events here.
As we continue to develop this project there will be plenty more ways to get involved. We want to hear from you! Please sign up to our Facebook group to stay up to date with events and co-design activities: (Climate FORTH).
