The Climate-Parent Fellowship is intended to support people who are working on parent-led, intergenerational, and/or family-focused climate engagement and organizing. We strongly encourage people to apply if they are already doing work in this area or if they have an idea for a new project that would contribute to the emerging climate-parent community.
Our ideal candidate would be an inspiring organizer, activist, or leader who is already engaged in developing new ideas or leading organizational strategy, is highly collaborative, and does not have access to existing funding sources. We are interested in fellows engaging in a range of climate engagement and movement strategies: creative (storytelling, film, blog, podcast, book, social media, etc), school campaigns, legal strategies, sustainable behavior programs, grassroots/community organizing, corporate focussed strategies, and others.
This is a global Fellowship. Candidates from all countries are eligible to apply. We particularly welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and expect that at least half of the Fellows appointed will be from the Global South. We’d also encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds in the Global North.
This Fellowship is an opportunity for individuals; it is not open to group applications. Where there are several people from a single group or organization interested in the Fellowship we highly encourage groups to discuss, select and nominate one person per organization.
