The Zero Carbon Communities Grant Scheme, run by South Cambridgeshire District Council, supports communities in South Cambridgeshire to take action on climate change at a very local level. Last year 2G3S supported successful applications from Great Shelford and from Sawston, where we are working in partnership with the parish council to plant trees and wild flowers.

Applications this year are invited for projects under the three themes:
- Community buildings
- Tree Planting/Nature
- Other projects which reduce carbon emissions
The deadline for applications to be received by the Council is 5pm on Friday 30 July 2021.
