WWF-New Zealand: Inviting Applications for Environmental Education Action Fund

Deadline: 18 November 2018

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)-New Zealand is inviting applications for its Environmental Education Action Fund to support schools and communities who, as part of their learning, are taking hands-on action to address an environmental issue.

Effective environmental education is about education in, about and for the environment. It doesn’t reach its full potential until learners have personalised their knowledge, made decisions on how to address issues, and reflected on that action.

Funding Information

The maximum fund amount that can be applied for is $15,000. Projects can be funded for up to three consecutive years, but new applications will need to be made for each successive year.

Funding Criteria

Preference is given to projects that:

  • Have clearly defined learning outcomes aimed to address a specific environmental issue or issues
  • Facilitate, support or promote opportunities for people to take action for their environment
  • Have sound project planning and evaluation processes
  • Provide evidence of strong community support
  • Enable teachers to deliver environmental education programmes as outlined in the Guidelines for Environmental education in New Zealand Schools (Ministry of Education, 1999)
  • Schools and community groups in New Zealand can apply; preference is given to those with IRD charitable status.

Note: The fund is about taking action. There is no funding for awareness, landscaping/ground maintenance, eco/enviro centre buildings, overseas travel, research projects or government authorities

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted online via given website.

Eligible Country: New Zealand
