JRCT’s Sustainable Future Programme Accepting Applications for November 2021 Deadline

About the Fund

Climate change caused by human activity is threatening the well-being of humanity. The wealthiest countries and individuals are responsible for a disproportionate share of emissions, whilst the poorest countries and sections of society are the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Similarly, our use of natural resources is unsustainable and unjust. Technological change is essential but not sufficient; fundamental changes to economic models and social norms will also be required, but there is not yet sufficient public or political consensus to make these changes.

Funding priorities include:

  • Better economics
  • Beyond consumerism
  • New voices
  • Responding to the dual harms of Covid-19 and systemic racism

Application Deadline

29 November
