New Net-Zero programme launched for charity sector in Cumbria & the North East

Become Green Together, a programme to help community organisations, charities and social enterprise organisations in Cumbria and the North East become more environmentally sustainable, has opened for applications and is keen for organisations from Cumbria to apply to take part.

The initiative forms part of the Going Green Together campaign, delivered by a partnership of the VONNE Climate Action Alliance (VCAA) members, VONNE, Cumbria CVS, Cumbria Action for Sustainability (CAfS), genee, SmartCarbon and SIDE Labs. The Going Green Together partners secured over £300,000 of funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and County Durham Community Foundation earlier this year to deliver the Going Green Together campaign over the next 15 months.
