This Community Think Tank Day, brought to you by Transition Town Brixton, aims to gather the ideas of Brixton residents to put together a strong application for the Low Carbon Communities Challenge. This two- year funding programme from the Department of Energy and Climate Change will provide financial and advisory support to 20 pioneering â€˜test-bedâ€™ communities across the UK that are seeking to cut carbon emissions and foster community leadership.
Each successful community will receive up to Â£500K for capital expenditure on households
or community buildings (with up to 10% for project management). Brixton has already
won funding to be a Low Carbon Zone which gives us an even stronger chance. The
deadline for the application is 30 December 2009, so we need to act quickly
This is a day where everyone creates the agenda
