Climate change

Introduction

In 2022 we will open for Fellowship applications in our theme Climate change. We will be seeking applications that help the UK to minimise climate change and adapt to its effects.

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 and policy solutions for decarbonising UK economies and society at every level.
  • Applications that seek to encourage behavioural change on an individual or national scale, for example through innovative education, communication, participation or policy initiatives.
  • Projects that seek a fair and equitable transition to a carbon-neutral future.

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 offered in partnership with The Frank Jackson Foundation. It is guided by our Environment Working Group of Fellows and other experts in this field.

Every year one Fellowship in this theme is funded by Eddie Goldfinch (CF 1970), as a way of giving back to the Fellowship and in reflection of his own interest in environmental issues. For 2023 he will fund two Fellowships, because none were awarded during the Covid-19 lockdown.

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.
