Are you working on an innovative solution for Climate Change?
Do you want to spread the word about your project and maybe attract funders? Or just connect with others who are working on their own climate solutions projects?
Now’s your chance. On Earth Day, April 22, the French Environment Minister, Ségolène Royal, launched “100 Projects for the Climate” with goal of accelerating the emergence of citizen-led initiatives to combat global warming.
The launch took place at the United Nations headquarters, where 100 countries came together on Earth Day to ratify the COP21 Climate Agreement. Individuals and groups with projects that offer effective and replicable solutions for combating climate change are encouraged to submit their projects by June 6th. After a citizen voting period, the 100 most-voted projects will be eligible for support and funding from the French Ministry of the Environment. Click here to register.
