OVO Foundation Invites Applications for Climate Changers Fund
Funding to equip disadvantaged children and young people with the skills to take on sustainability issues.
Constituted not-for-profit groups in the UK can now apply for their share of a £1 million fund which seeks to help give every child a fairer, greener future.
Projects must involve at least one of the following:
- Campaigning for better climate change education.
- Increasing opportunities for children and young people to learn from and connect to nature in/around schools.
- Inspiring positive action on the climate crisis in/beyond schools.
Work should focus on:
- Children and young people (up to 25).
- Geographic areas and settings with higher levels of need among children and young people as defined by, for example, social mobility, child poverty or free school meal stats.
It is expected that up to three projects will be funded for up to three years, with lower levels of funding for early-stage ideas and up to £350,000 for more established projects.
The deadline for Stage One applications is 23.59pm on 22 July 2022.
