A Low Carbon Food City for All

The Low Carbon Food City project is a partnership approach to climate action through food systems change. The project builds on years of excellent work carried out by the community food sector, and is framed around key actions in the new Glasgow City Food Plan. It will enable communities to be actively involved in creating a sustainable, fair and healthy food future, ensuring participation from the ground up.

Core themes of the project are community participation, urban agriculture, food education, campaigning, and COP26.

The Community Activator posts are integral to the delivery of project activities. We are recruiting for 5 Community Activators who will be hosted by GCFN’s partner organisations. This will enable connections to local networks and existing projects. The Community Activators principal role is to galvanise and catalyse community participation, giving people the skills and support they need to act on sustainable food and climate change.

This post is part of a team structure, and will work cooperatively with the Project Manager, Project Coordinator and Project Support Officer.

This unique project is delivered in partnership with GCFN, Urban Roots, Glasgow Eco Trust, St Paul’s Youth Forum, The Space, and Central and West Integration Network. The project is funded through the The National Lottery Community Fund Climate Action Fund.
