The Minor Foundation for Major Challenges is a Norwegian trust that funds communication projects which mitigate anthropogenic climate change. The board grants support to the projects they believe have the greatest impact on influencing public opinion and increasing political support for cutting green house gas emissions. The Foundation’s work focuses on 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. Most of their funding goes to Europe. So far they have supported around 30 projects. Innovative and experimental projects with high impact are particularly encouraged. The thematic areas of eligible for funding are (1) climate change and (2) environment and natural resources. The foundation’s priorities for the 2019-2023 period are to:
– encourage and support innovation in climate communication
– increase the number of voices and narratives in climate advocacy
– help strengthen social and political movements that open up for radical change
– concentrate on supporting European proposals
Eligible for funding are non-profit organisations with a mission to combat climate change and environmental concerns.
They have funded projects in Asia (China) and Europe but welcome applications from all over the world.
Grant funding up to €10,000 is available for Small Grants and above €10,000 for Large Grants (€20,000-€200,000).
The application process is conducted online. The next application deadline is 6 August 2023.
