We’ve created new forums for CTA members on issues around climate action. We’ll nurture these new communities of interest and practice to be spaces for sharing ideas, discussing best practice, engaging with experts and learning from each other.
They’ll be run and supported by CTA, but led by the needs of participants. They’ll also offer a chance to hear about and shape CTA’s evidence, policy and influencing work. Check out our new forums:
We need to influence Scottish Government, local government and other funders to see our sector as part of the solution to net zero. We know the potential of Community Transport to accelerate modal shift, reduce car use and reduce carbon emissions.
But we also know the challenges of finding the right funding, the right model and the right supplier for Electric Vehicles. The £90m ‘net zero funding gap’ facing the sector, which we identified in our More Than a Minibus report, needs to be filled.
We’re pleased that the Scottish Government have listened to our calls for more EV funding for Community Transport:
ScotZEB2: a total of £58m for consortia, which must include smaller and non-profit operators, to purchase new zero-emission technologies and vehicles
We’re also continuing to celebrate the great work on sustainability being done by local charities, community groups and social enterprises, from Electric Vehicles to placemaking.
Climate action is everyone’s job, so we’ll all have to develop new knowledge and learn new skills to make informed choices, reduce our own carbon footprint and help Scotland achieve net zero.
We all need to be carbon literate as we adapt to Electric Vehicles, find new sustainable suppliers or redesign transport services. We’ll signpost CTA members to learning and training opportunities and develop our own to help you upskill.
We’re also continuing to provide advice and support on these issues through the CTA Advice Service.
In addition to our new forums, check out our packed events programme for opportunities for you to network with green funders, hear from climate experts, access net zero training and learn from your peers:
