  • The Linnean Society - Our Local Nature Grant Scheme

    Created: 06/09/2022

    The "Our Local Nature" Grants are available to fund innovative projects, designed and led by young people in the UK. It aims to empower young people across the UK to take the lead on projects that involve their local nature and natural spaces.

    The grant is purposefully broad and welcomes novel ideas. Examples of possible proposals include:

    • running a school festival about nature
    • painting community murals showcasing biodiversity in the area
    • building a community garden
    • creating a nature walk
    • hiring a speaker to come and talk about local foraging.

    Adult applicants should develop their proposal alongside young people and the projects should seek to affect change or empower local young people and their surrounding communities to increase access to natural spaces and improve understanding of the local biodiversity.

    Who can apply

    Individuals and organisations who are linked with a group of young people within the UK. This includes, but is not limited to, school staff, student groups, home education groups, community groups and small charities. There must be evidence that the applicant is linked with a group of young people.

    When to apply

    The next deadline is midnight on 01 November 2022.

    How to apply

    Apply using the online form on the Society website. Awardees will be selected by an online Youth Panel made up of 16-18 year-olds across the country.
