Creative Climate Futures: Our Pioneer Neighbourhoods

From now until March 2025, Creative Climate Futures will work with organisations and local residents in two “pioneer” neighbourhoods in Glasgow to understand what climate change means locally, to imagine what climate ready futures might look like, and to speed up local action to make these a reality.

These neighbourhoods are some of the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change - where flooding and overheating are more likely, and where underlying social and economic inequalities might make it harder for communities to respond to these impacts.

The lead partners

We are pleased to announce the lead local partners for the two “pioneer” neighbourhoods in Glasgow - Pavillion in Easterhouse, and Crossroads in Laurieston & Hutchesontown. Click through to find out more.

        

Additional opportunities

We are beginning to develop a city-wide learning, training and capacity sharing programme, starting in 2024. The programme will support community organisations across Glasgow to act on their local priorities. If you’d like to be involved, please contact us at [email protected].
