One Planet Forth Valley is a project run by the Central Scotland Regional Equality Council (CSREC) and funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
We work with households from minority ethnic and LGBTI communities living in the Forth Valley area to support and advise, build capacity and resilience around climate change through multi-layered interventions. The long-term impact of the project is to help minority ethnic and LGBTI communities make necessary behaviour changes to reduce their CO2e emissions, foster community cohesion through involvement in climate change-related initiatives and reduce social isolation.
The Project consists of six parts:
The aim of the project is to reduce consumption in households across the Forth Valley to achieve carbon savings of 92.2 tCO2e and lifetime savings of 276.6 tCO2e.
tCO2e = tonnes (t) of carbon dioxide ( CO2) equivalent (e) – "tonne" is a metric ton, or 2,200 pounds
