COP26 Legacy Grants Fund

The first round of funding is now closed, please look out for the second round opening soon!

Building on the momentum from COP26, we want to enable community groups and grassroots organisations to continue taking action. We’re offering a legacy grant to Scottish groups so that lack of funding isn’t a barrier. We are particularly looking for applications that involve local people and marginalised groups and build on activity that took place during COP26. For more FAQS please see here

If you are interested, please apply by pressing the button below, after which a project board will review the applications and allocate the funding on a first come, first served basis.

This next chapter of the Climate Fringe’s story will see SCCS and SCCAN collaborating so that the Climate Fringe is still a space for people to come together, in Scotland.

How to Get Involved

1. Plan your Event

Did you help organise or run an event around the time of COP26? Have you got an idea for another event this year to keep the post-COP momentum going? 

We’d love for you to get your local community group or organisation involved! See the events calendar to see what’s on.

2. Use the logo 

Brand any communications (posters, Zoom backgrounds, digital flyers, social media, etc) you have about your event with the Climate Fringe logo.

And tag @climatefringe on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

3. Add your event to the calendar

Our simple event uploader will help you list all the relevant information in order to promote your event.

If you have any difficulties, please contact: [email protected]

4. Keep in touch with us 

We’d love to know that you are planning a legacy event.

Let us know by emailing [email protected] so we can send you updates, and if you have any questions you can check out our FAQs.


All planning is, of course, subject to change and in light of the current Covid situation.
We recognise that having in-person events can foster a real sense of community and have more of an impact, however we only encourage this so long as it complies with government guidelines. Please consider hosting online contingency plans for your event.
