  • Better economics
    • Current economic systems encourage unsustainable growth and do not adequately reflect the true costs and risks of resource depletion, climate change and other environmental problems.  They will fund work that:
      • explores and promotes ways that well-being and sustainability, rather than traditional forms of economic growth, could be placed at the heart of public policy
      • explores and promotes mechanisms that could better align business and investor behaviour with environmental sustainability and the long-term public interest
      • researches and develops innovations and new practical models of enterprise that can be embedded within community practice
      • challenges future investment in, or subsidies for, fossil fuels.
  • Beyond consumerism
    • There is evidence that the ever higher levels of consumption, once basic needs for security and comfort are met, do not result in greater happiness or well-being. At the same time, such ever-increasing consumption is not environmentally sustainable, and contributes towards social problems including overwork, anxiety and loss of community. They will fund:
      • campaigns, initiatives and mechanisms which encourage radical, large scale shifts in behaviour and culture away from consumerism towards more sustainable ways of living and using resources
      • exploration of initiatives and models which promote positive alternatives to materialism for a more fulfilled life
      • work which engages people individually and collectively in holistic and value-led approaches to transformed behaviour and lifestyle, as an alternative to consumerism.
  • New voices
    • In order to create a broad-based, democratic and lasting transition to a low-carbon sustainable society, they need to involve everyone. JRCT is particularly concerned that marginalised groups and young activists have a voice in decisions which affect them.
    • They will fund:
      • campaigns and movements that give marginalised or under-represented groups a voice on issues of environmental and economic justice
      • initiatives that encourage organisations from outside the traditional environmental field to get involved in environmental justice
      • networks that link and support local environmental justice groups
      • the replication of innovative local projects to involve New Voices regionally or nationally.

Eligibility Criteria

  • JRCT is interested in funding work which:
    • is about removing problems through radical solutions, and not simply about making problems easier to live with
    • has clear sense of objectives, and how to achieve them
    • is innovative and imaginative
    • and where the grant has a good chance of making a difference
  • Within its areas of interest, the trust makes grants to a range of range of organisations and to individuals.
  • If applicants are based outside the UK and they are registered as a charitable organisation in their local jurisdiction, they may apply for general support if all of their work fits within their published programmes, and the following criteria are also met:
    • applicant’s organisation is governed by an upaid board
    • applicant’s organisation is not for profit
    • applicant’s organisation’s formal purposes fall within the list of charitable purposes recognised within English law.
