On 28th March 2017 FRAE Fife held the Environmental Project Showcase event in partnership with Kirkcaldy Old Kirk Trust, Hayfield Community Centre and Greener Kirkcaldy The
eco-afternoon was full of attractions not only for the participants of the project but also for walk-in guests . All attendees had an opportunity to explore our Climate Challenge Fund projects
related to saving energy and eco living, get “Save on Bills” advice and learn useful tips how to decrease home and transport carbon emissions and make eco- friendly choices.
There were short varied presentations of the successful Climate Challenge Fund projects concluding this year and displays remained open to the public all evening
Younger guests also had an opportunity to gain knowledge about saving energy and participate in fun activities such as painting birds’ houses, eco honey tasting, and experience electricity- generating bike.
Participants of the showcase were invited to celebrate FRAE Fife’s successful Climate Challenge Project during the second part of the day: It was both a Cultural & Environmental Event for all the communities and individuals who actively participated in the Project and contributed to carbon reduction Fife-wide. The successful event attracted over 250 members from different communities: Arab, Syrian, Pakistani, Polish, Roma, Bulgarian, African and Scottish. Communities and groups who contributed the most to the project and the healthier planet were awarded for their commitment and eco-approach.
