    Thriving Earth Exchange, a program of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), is seeking partners who are interested in collaborating with Thriving Earth Exchange on an active Belmont Forum - Climate Environment & Health funding opportunity. 

    AGU is a global membership society of 60,000+ Earth and space scientists in approximately 135 countries who practice a range of disciplines - from the core of the Earth to the surface of the Sun and everything in between. Thriving Earth Exchange leverages these Earth and space scientists to work with communities of all types to tackle community issues and advance local priorities related to natural hazards, natural resources, and climate change.

    This opportunity requires a transdisciplinary team of natural scientists, including climate scientists, health scientists, social and economic scientists (humanities), as well as active participation of different stakeholders such as: policy makers, researchers, regulators, non-governmental organizations and civil society organizations, communities and industry.   

    Currently, AGU is seeking research scientists who have expertise in the following areas; food and nutrition, heat and health, and climate-sensitive infectious diseases.  

    Research scientists with an interest and belief in the notion of 'community first' or 'community science' (communities and scientists working together), are highly desired.

    Scientists based in the UK, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Turkey or Brazil are encouraged to respond.  

    If you or your organization is interested in collaborating with AGU to prepare a competitive submission, please send an email to or call 202-777-7304 as soon as possible.  Thank you!
