The NextGen Committee will primarily judge proposals on their potential to help reverse global warming. The committee will secondarily consider the collateral social and environmental benefits of the project. Examples of projects could include:

  • Reduction of C02e
    • Strong proposals of this kind will demonstrate high-quality estimations of direct carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) reductions. The Environmental Protection Agency has a greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator that may be useful in calculating these estimations. An organization may prefer to utilize a different CO2e calculator or estimate carbon savings in other ways. As long as an organization’s methodology for such estimations is clearly stated, applicants may utilize any tools they wish.
  • Climate Communication and Education
    • Strong proposals of this kind will engage audiences to respond to climate change in their own distinct ways, or will be dedicated to education or research toward solving largescale barriers to climate action. The Yale Program on Climate Change Communication could be a helpful resource for projects like this.
  • Corporate engagement to advance climate goals
    • Strong proposals of this kind will focus on corporate engagement and will seek to influence businesses in their key climate change related practices in order to mitigate negative environmental impacts.
  • Other
    • Other compelling proposals that help to reverse global warming in ways not mentioned above will also be considered.

    It’s so unfortunate that our country, the Philippines is not included as your priority. But we will be looking forward in the future for the expansion of your priority area. We are looking for a partner to help our unfortunate brethren occupying highland parts of the country frequently visited by not less than 20 typhoons every year.
