Cambridge Global Challenges

 

The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges (MFMC) is accepting applications from all over the world to fund communication projects which mitigate anthropogenic climate change.

MFMC shall support the development of innovative communication strategies that engage people, and that facilitate the transition necessary to prevent dangerous climate changes.

Objectives

  • Prevent or limit man-made global climate changes.
  • Focus on influencing public opinion, providing inspiration, changing attitudes, spreading information, etc., all meant to have an impact on decision-makers in society. Their ultimate goal is to reach as many people as possible in the hope of limiting and helping to prevent global climate changes.
  • Support efforts which are innovative, experimental and untested, and will prioritise means and measures which are likely to have the strongest possible impact at any given time.

Priority Areas

  • Support communication that creates change.
  • Prioritise politically oriented communication.
  • Support new voices, actors and narratives in the climate debate, and value diversity.
  • Innovative messages and strategies are more important than the innovative use of channels and media.
  • Support experienced organisations and networks.

Eligibility Criteria

The foundation welcomes applications for financial support from all over the world.
