Join the Unlock our Future Fund Panel
Applications are now open for up to two new Panel members.
The Vattenfall Unlock our Future Fund supports projects in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire contributing towards a climate-smart future. The fund’s strategic priorities are projects which:
- Contribute to a climate smarter world with sustainability at its core;
- Invest in community facilities and activities that are fit for the future and are environmentally sustainable;
- Support creative solutions; and,
- Ensure a legacy (lasting impact) that brings clear benefit to the local community.
The fund is administered by Foundation Scotland, with funding awards made annually.
A Panel of Community Champions has been formed to advise Foundation Scotland on grant awards and shape the fund's ongoing strategy. Community Champions are individuals who have knowledge, skills and interest in the geographical area of benefit and the strategic priorities of the fund.
Members of the Panel of Community Champions serve between two and four years. Four to five meetings per year can be expected. These are currently being held online, but may return to face-to-face meetings during 2022. Panel meetings are held during the working day. When face-to-face meetings recommence, they are likely to be in central Aberdeen.
The role is voluntary, however, reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
To be eligible to join the Community Champions Panel you must be aged 16 or above and have knowledge, skills and interest in the geographical area of benefit and the strategic priorities of the fund.
