Grants for Climate Mitigation

    The Climate Breakthrough Project is funding great work on climate change. The Project will provide $2 million over three years for bold and innovative approaches for slowing climate change. We are looking for people to apply.

    Current strategies to address the climate crisis do not meet the scale of the problem.  The Project is supporting potential breakthrough ideas that could result in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, including high-risk, high-reward concepts.

    The program will invest in 1 to 3 exceptional individuals or teams of 2-4 people (as opposed to institutions) who can identify and pursue scalable breakthrough strategies for emission reductions. Ideas could range from changing how fossil fuel projects are financed, we raise or distribute our food, manage our forests, or get to work.

    We are conducting a global search, and potential candidates needn't be English-speakers.

    Please help spread the word!

    • Contact me with the names of potential candidates
    • Forward this email to those in your network
    • Tell me where we can get the word out: list serves, likely organizations, social media groups, etc.


     If you or someone you know is interested in applying, please reach out to me at chris@chrisallan.info to discuss your ideas. The application process is simple, and can be done in many languages.

    More information is available at the Climate Breakthrough Project web site.

    I am interested about the opportunity. At this moment I am working on idea on water culture and climate change. It is good to mentioned that professor Rauno Ssairinen and Janet Anaond of University of Eastern Finland is my adviser in this project.
