Community Climate Change Forum

  • Latest update: This tender is being postponed until at least the end of April 2020. We will reopen the procurement once the Covid-19 situation improves. The money will remain available and the 12 month period for which the contract will run will be adjusted accordingly.

To help develop district-wide ownership of the climate emergency, Lewes District Council wishes to enable a ‘Community Forum’ to provide a vehicle for communication and consultation and provide a focus for sustainability issues in the district.

In order for the Forum to have independence from the council, a third party is being sought to undertake its facilitation and administration. A budget has been allocated with which to commission this work with the aim to provide three to four events over the course of the next 12 months with a view to the forum becoming self-sustaining. 

Expressions of interest are now requested from local not-for-profit organisations who may wish (singly or in partnership) to undertake the work. 

More information is available in the document below.
