Case Study: Community Pathways to Sustainability: Greener Kirkcaldy

Established in 2009, Greener Kirkcaldy is a community-led charity and development trust working locally to combat the climate emergency, tackle fuel poverty and food insecurity, and bring people together for a more sustainable and resilient Kirkcaldy. They deliver a range of projects, events and skills training to meet the needs and goals of local people – working towards a future where everyone can live better and tread more lightly on our planet. Their work is extensive from running a Fife-wide energy advice service to growing food, teaching local people how to cook and eat sustainably, and much more.

   They are lead partners on Climate Action Fife which brings together individuals, communities, local government and businesses to tackle the climate emergency and make Fife a greener and fairer place to live. This National Lottery Community Fund programme delivers a range of activities that build capacity of communities, engage people from all backgrounds and sectors, tackle carbon emissions and deliver ambitious longer-term plans.
