Ideas Fund

2014 sees the return of the CSGN Ideas Fund following the enthusiastic response it received at last year’s CSGN Forum.

The CSGN Ideas Fund is allocated to a successful project each year during the CSGN Forum. The allocated funding can be up to £5000 and those interested will be required to complete an application form during the registration period of the Forum. The delegates of the best five projects will have the chance to make a presentation and then answer questions from the audience. The winning project will be identified after an audience vote.

The application deadline for CSGN Ideas Fund 2014 is at noon on 7 May 2014. For more information please visit the CSGN Ideas Fund page. 

Our Vision for Central Scotland

‘By 2050, Central Scotland has been transformed into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality.’

The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) will change the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east.

The CSGN is a national development within the National Planning Framework which aims to make ‘a significant contribution to Scotland's sustainable economic development’. It involves public agencies and stakeholders working together to align their policies, programmes and actions to achieve a common aim.
