Funding to promote public understanding of the science of ecology.
The British Ecological Society (BES) has launched the latest round of its outreach funding programme for education and engagement activities in Great Britain.
Ecology is defined by the BES as the scientific study of the distribution, abundance and dynamics of organisms, their interactions with other organisms and their physical environment.
All individuals and organisations that are able to organise public engagement events in ecology are eligible to apply. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Members of the BES
- Community groups
The fund offers grants of up to £2,000 for projects which meet at least two of the following objectives:
- Increase public understanding of, and engagement with, ecology.
- Stimulate discussion about ecology and its implications for society.
- Inspire and enthuse people of all ages about the science of ecology, especially those not previously interested.
- Develop skills in communicating the science of ecology.
All objectives must be aimed at a non-academic audience and all projects must provide a clear demonstration of direct interaction with the public.
The deadline to apply is 15 March 2023.
How To Apply
The fund is open until 15 March 2023.
Applications must be made using the online application form.
