  • Motion reference: S6M-11275

That the Parliament hails the success of the latest round of the Scottish Government-funded Just Transition Participatory Budgeting Fund, which, it understands, has resulted in substantial investment in the local economies of Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City and Moray, while accelerating the move to a just transition for north-east communities; understands that the Banffshire and Buchan Coast constituency has witnessed 10 projects sharing £160,266 in funding from the 2023 round; congratulates the successful organisations; encourages other community organisations to come forward with bids for funding in the next round, and calls for all elected representatives of the north east to actively promote this fund to the communities that they serve.
