Deadline Approaching for Climate Changers Fund

Children & Young People

11 July 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Groups can still apply for funding to promote climate change awareness in children and young people.

Constituted non-profit organisations in the UK have two weeks left to apply for green funding from OVO Foundation.

Projects must integrate young people’s voices and 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.

There is a focus on children and young people aged up to 25, and areas of greater disadvantage.

A total funding pot of around £1 million is on offer. 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 to apply is 23.59 on 22 July 2022.


How To Apply

There is a two-stage application process:

  • Stage one: Online application to be completed by 11.59pm on 22 July 2022, with decisions expected by 10 August 2022.
  • Stage two: Shortlisted applicants will meet with OVO Foundation (in-person or via video call) between 22 and 26 August 2022, with final decisions expected by 3 October 2022.

Full guidelines and an online application form can be found on the OVO Foundation website.
