If you wish to take part but there are financial barriers to do so, you can enquire about bursaries by emailing us before you apply. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Become Green Together bursary. You can find out more details about the bursary scheme on our blog.
Please note that these subsidised costs cover membership in iiE and use of the Smart Carbon dashboard over the 12-month period this programme covers. Organisations wishing to use these resources beyond the programme will be responsible for meeting the ongoing costs. We would advise organisations to begin to include environmental sustainability costs such as these as part of their ongoing core costs in organisational budgets.
Going Green Together has been awarded funding to deliver this pilot programme in order to build a foundation for climate action in the VCSE sector, and to learn how best to achieve this in future projects. When you apply to join this cohort, we therefore ask that you ensure at least one member of your organisation is available for:
Your organisation also needs to commit to paying the fees for accessing the SmartCarbon calculator and Investors in the Environment framework as outlined above.
Dates for the calendar: a meet-and-greet session for new applicants will be held online at 1pm on Wednesday 7th December.
Applications are closed as of September 30th. We will be re-opening applications in the future, which involves filling out a quick and simple form about your organisation.
To apply to join this cohort, please fill out the following form. Please note that spaces are not guaranteed, as we are required to ensure that participating organisations are from a diverse range of geographical areas, organisational scales and different carbon-intensity activities e.g. transport, office, housing.
If you require a bursary to cover the costs of the course, please email email@example.com with the subject line Become Green Together bursary before filling out the form below. We can then make sure a bursary is assigned to you before you apply. Bursaries will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This second round of applications are open until Wednesday 30th November. To ensure you are able to enjoy all the benefits of being in the cohort, we recommend applying as soon as possible.
All VCSEs working in Cumbria and the North East of England.
