Resilient economies and communities

Introduction

In 2022 we will open for Fellowship applications in our theme Resilient economies and communities. We will be seeking applications that help to build resilience for UK communities of all kinds, through increasing economic activity and opportunity.

We are particularly interested in projects that use economic activity to achieve any of these goals:

  • Strengthening those communities most affected by current or long-term economic challenges and future-proofing them against further economic shifts.
  • Unlocking the economic potential of disadvantaged communities and individuals through equitable access to jobs and skills.
  • Mobilising the power of the business sector or social enterprise to support communities.
  • Ensuring that economic activities operate sustainably and support a just transition to a green future.

We welcome applications from the business or community sectors. We will prioritise applications that adopt inclusive, participatory and collaborative approaches.

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 Economy and Enterprise Working Group of Fellows and other experts in this field.

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