Call for project proposals for a Recovery for Resilient Sustainable Future

DOES YOUR COMMUNITY HAVE AN IDEA FOR A SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVE THAT WOULD HELP THE LOCAL AREA, ITS PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AFTER THE LOCKDOWN?

APPLY BEFORE 29 SEPTEMBER 2020!

We’re looking for innovative projects that can really help make a difference to the quality of life in your area as we adjust to life with Covid19.

They can cover anything from education and health and wellbeing to generating sustainable energy and combatting climate change, as long as they are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Perhaps you have a great idea for a project which would deliver sustainable mobility while allowing social distancing; a plan for using digitalisation to enable better business/life/social cohesion; or a need for equipment or training which could spark local entrepreneurial skills or support sustainable businesses.
