From our partners at The NEO Youth Climate Action Fund
NEO Youth Climate Action Fund is intended to support young people in planning and executing projects with a focus on climate and environmental resiliency. The project theme is “circular systems.” The fund aims to be accessible and all accepted projects will receive their funding up-front — students will never have to pay for anything out of pocket and be reimbursed later.
Who should apply?
Motivated young people between the ages of 15 and 21 can apply as a team of 2-5 people. If students don’t have anyone to apply with, they can let us know and we can pair them with teammates. Applications close on May 31, 2021 but we would like to move to a rolling application process without a single deadline.
What do teams need to provide?
- Teams will provide a problem statement, solution, timeline, budget, and how they plan to measure their success, for which templates are available on the website. Advisors and Mentors will help teams fine tune their projects and stay on track.
Need some help figuring out a project?
- Interested applicants can sign up for one of our Project Workshops. Whether they have a project ready to go or they need some help turning an idea into a convincing pitch, these workshops will walk prospective teams through the process of developing, submitting, and executing a successful project.
