Zero Carbon Daviot is a community run organisation, registered as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). The group was established to bring about radical reductions in carbon emissions in order to avoid runaway climate change.
This is driven through a range of projects that aim to decarbonise how we live and to restore our natural environment for the wellbeing of the community in Daviot, Aberdeenshire.
We meet on the second Monday of the month, at 7:30pm in The Shop, Main Street, Daviot. Everyone is welcome!
Daviot Car Club – Voting Opens!
Since the start of Zero Carbon Daviot we’ve been inspired by the Huntly Travel Hub, which provides sustainable travel options to everyone in the Huntly community. We’ve had a vision to create something similar in Daviot and this project plans to provide a community electric vehicle, available for all, affordable, flexible and importantly, low emissions.
Community car clubs have proven popular in other communities, allowing those who can’t afford a car to access low emissions travel, and giving people the experience of an EV to understand what their range is and how long they take to charge.
If we are successful the funding will allow for purchase of the vehicle and the necessary charging equipment. The vehicle can then be operated by one of the existing leasing operators from a central location in the village.
Voting Closes 5pm Friday 13th October
