A new fund to accelerate data-driven environmental action in 12 cities across Europe has opened. Spearheaded by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, and backed by, it is targeted at stakeholders advancing data-driven environmental projects.

“The Action Fund will grant up to 350,000 EUR per project to civil society organisations, academic institutions, and non-profit research institutes in selected cities in Europe, who are working on, or wish to develop environmental projects which use publicly available data – such as Google’s Environmental Insights Explorer (EIE) – to drive environmental and climate action, increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Projects should be focused on non-profit, charitable or educational purposes,” ICLEI’s website states.

It is open to entrants based in any of these cities: Aalborg, Berlin, Birmingham, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Greater Manchester, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Lille, Mannheim, Nantes, or Strasbourg.

Applications must be submitted before the 15 June 2020
