The Together Fund
The fund is mostly aimed at projects led by young people (aged 16-25), but we will consider applications for adult-led projects that engage young people in climate change, particularly those that involve young people in the development of the project.
Applicants aged under 18 will need the consent of parents/guardians, who will need to be present in any meetings with TCC or partner organisations.
The grant must be used between August and COP26 in November 2021, with the Great Big Green Week from 18-26th September as a key milestone for hosting activities as part of the project or showcasing your work at a local and national level.
What projects will be funded?
Making your area greener: You might be in a guide or scout group organising community litter picks to improve green spaces, a student spearheading tree planting in your school or a youth group wanting to transform a neglected area into a wildlife haven.
Campaigning for a greener world: a group of young people encouraging more sustainable behaviour in their community, or school students wanting to encourage their local politicians to take action, or young art students planning to take a message from their school to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.
Starting up: You might be a young entrepreneur wanting to bring the next big green to the world, or a place of worship that wants to support their green youth group to get off the ground.
