Caring for our natural environment

Introduction

In 2022 we will open for Fellowship applications in our theme Caring for our natural environment. We will be seeking applications that aim to protect, restore and enhance our natural environment.

Applications can be made on this website from 13 September 2022 until Tuesday 22 November at 5pm. If you would like to receive further information as it becomes available, please sign up for our ‘application alerts’ using the form at the bottom of this page and we will keep you updated.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Practical solutions to address nature degradation, its causes and effects, and how our natural environment can be improved.
  • Applications that seek to increase understanding, appreciation and engagement by stakeholders and wider society, for example through education, communication, participation or policy initiatives.
  • Projects that address the impact of changes in how we use and value our natural environment.
  • Projects that seek fair and equitable access to nature’s benefits for all UK communities.

We recognise that our two annual themes on the environment – climate change and caring for our natural environment – are linked and as such we welcome applications which straddle these two themes.

Fellows in this theme form part of a dedicated community specialising in this area, with tailored opportunities for support and networking in this field.

This annual theme is guided by our Environment Working Group of Fellows and other experts in this field.

See Fellows' impact in this theme.

We recognise our responsibility to the environment through our Fellowship programme and our operations. Our progress on this is explained here.
