Stipend and Grant Available : Apply for the People Powered Climate Democracy Accelerator U.S.A

Leaders in the government and civil society are welcome to apply for the People Powered Climate Democracy Accelerator. The Climate Democracy Accelerator (CDA), a six-month practice-focused training and support programme, was introduced by the People Powered Organisation.

The CDA provides its members with the tools they need to plan and implement a fair, inclusive process for a climate transition. By participating in the CDA, new members will initiate a project to carry out a participatory programme with a climate focus. The needs and voices of the local communities must be taken into account in their programme.

To be selected for this programme, governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in the civil society must work together. There is space for 15 participants in the programme, and candidates are encouraged to apply from anywhere in the world.

Background of the Programme:
Climate change is a serious global concern that affects every aspect of modern life, including forest fires, reduced agricultural yields, droughts, rising sea levels, and catastrophic flooding.

To address these problems and solve the climate crisis, governments must provide people, activists, civil society, and many others the tools they need to participate in the creation and implementation of climate policies.

Including marginalised voices in decision-making processes and encouraging public participation in these initiatives are two ways that governments can create climate-focused policies that respond to community concerns.

As such, People Powered is seeking leaders in civil society and government to form a new cohort of innovators ready to launch participatory projects. This project attempts to influence climate policy in the areas of agroecology, air pollution, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, and more.

Don't miss out on the application deadline 27 June 2024.
