We’re delighted to announce that we’ve received £1.5 million of #NationalLottery funding through their Climate Action Fund! Over the next 5 years, NEP in partnership with #MOZES our Green Meadows project will work with the community to take action on climate change in the #Meadows area of #Nottingham.

The grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, will see the Green Meadows project equip the people of the Meadows with the knowledge, skills and support required to overcome the barriers they face to achieving carbon neutrality. The Meadows area hopes to lead Nottingham’s transformation to a Net Zero Carbon City by 2028, and act as a catalyst for other areas to take on the challenge.
The Green Meadows project will also bring community education, engagement and movement building to the Meadows. Across 5 years, the project will work with the community to build local capability and capacity to find solutions to climate change, backed by resources and ongoing creative activities to provide a wide range of opportunities for engagement with the project.
The Climate Action Fund is part of The National Lottery Community Fund’s Environment Strategy, which has seen significant National Lottery investment through community-led projects that are focussed on activities to not only improve the environment, but use it to enhance the lives of people and communities. Since April 2013, the Fund has awarded more than £340 million to environmental projects, through almost 5,000 grants.
Thanks to National Lottery players, £41 billion has been raised for more than 565,000 good causes across the UK since 1994. National Lottery players raise £30 million every week for good causes in the UK. The National Lottery is playing a critical role in supporting people, projects and communities during these challenging times.

“NEP relocated to the Community Centre in the heart of the Meadows where we were asked by local people to work with them on climate change. One year later we are about to receive the funding from The National Lottery Community Fund that will make this possible. This is a great opportunity, and we are really looking forward to being a part of the Climate Action Fund and getting started in the Spring”.
“Thanks to National Lottery players, we will able to make great strides towards becoming a more Climate Change resilient community in the Meadows and play our part in helping Nottingham to achieve its 2028 Net Zero Carbon target.”
