Approved projects

Last changed: 25 January 2024

Below is a list of all projects that have been approved for funding from the climate fund and the contact person for the project.

2020 to 2022

During 2020, 2021 and 2022, contributions to the Climate Fund have been substantially reduced, around SEK 200,000 compared to around 2 million SEK an average year. This is mainly due to heavily reduced travel in 2020 - 2022 (because of the pandemic), but also because the travel agency has had problems charging the correct climate fee. Given the funds available, the work needed, by applicants and the steering group, cannot be justified. Hence, no projects were granted any fundig during 2020 - 2022.
