Get involved with climate action

3. Residents and communities

Climate change is a key issue facing all of our communities as we move towards reaching carbon neutral by 2038. Climate action not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but can also help to address issues of fuel and food insecurity, accessibility, a changing economy and health and wellbeing.

Through the pandemic and beyond, we've seen the impact that residents and communities in Stockport can have when we work together.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Apply for community funding

If you're part of a community group, organisation, school or college, you may be eligible to apply for funding to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and raise awareness about climate change.

There are 2 funding streams currently open to applications:
