The Environment Now (TEN) Upcoming Funding Opportunity

“The National Youth Agency in partnership with O2 Think Big are launching an exciting programme aimed at 17-25 year olds in the UK. The Environment Now will fund young people up to £10,000 to use digital technology to find innovative solutions to pressing environmental issues.

We are looking to fund young people with unique ideas to help the environment, such as improving energy efficiency, reducing waste, or recycling, and will offer mentoring, work experience and insight sessions with industry professionals to help bring their ideas to life.

Environmental issues are already presenting challenges to how we live, and we believe that digital technology can help create solutions and lead us to a greener, better world.  We believe that young people have the innovation, skills and passion to drive positive change, and we want you to get thinking about the environmental problems we all face, and how digital tech can help solve them.

The Environment Now (TEN) programme is managed by the National Youth Agency through the Our Bright Future programme.

The programme will be launching in November. For more information please contact: ten@o2thinkbig.co.uk
