Youth Climate Action Fund Project for Bulawayo Youths (Upto US$5,000 In Grants)

Call for Application – Youth Climate Action Fund Project for Bulawayo Youths. The City of Bulawayo is one of 100 cities that has received funding and technical assistance to spur a groundswell of youth-driven climate action. This is in a realisation that climate change is real and happening now. The Youth Climate Action Fund (YCAF), a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies provides a new opportunity to fund creative and innovative ideas to tackle climate change at the local level.

Through the YCAF, youth-led and youth-serving organizations and groups can receive up to US$5000 micro grants to support actions that focus on environmental issues and implement climate action initiatives in our communities.

As part of the Youth Climate Action Fund, His Worship Senator David Coltart, the Mayor is calling for new and ambitious climate efforts led by young people.

These ideas may include:

  • • Youth-led awareness, education, research, and development initiatives, including: youth-led climate education programs; youth climate hackathons; youth-developed climate surveys and research; youth-informed clubs or curriculum; and youth-designed public art and awareness campaigns.
  • • Youth-driven climate mitigation and adaptation projects, including: youth-led community gardening, tree planting, reforestation, and urban farming campaigns; youth-managed recycling, upcycling and waste reduction programs; and youth-produced climate resilience workshops and disaster preparedness programs.
  • • Co-governed youth climate action plans, including: partnerships between city leaders and youth groups to inform climate-related policy ideas, decisions, or actions or the formation of youth climate ambassadors or advisory boards.
