National Geographic Society seeking Proposals for Equity and the Natural World 2020

Deadline: 21-Oct-20

Donor: National Geographic Society

Grant Type: Grant

Grant-size: $10,000 to $100,000

Countries/Regions: All Countries

Areas: Environment

The National Geographic Society has announced a Request for Proposals for the “Equity and the Natural World”.

National Geographic wants to bring hidden stories to the surface and to understand in rich detail those who have been given far too little consideration in the environmental movement. They want to tell stories that illuminate the policies and actions that have brought global community to an unprecedented moment on the precipice of planetary climate disaster—and how frontline communities will feel the consequences much more than wealthy ones.

Join to tell stories of environmental challenges and equitable solutions with all communities in mind, ensuring this Earth is hospitable to everyone.

Funding Information

Applicants may request up to $80,000. Budgets of successful proposals will include reasonable, well-justified costs directly required to complete the project.

Examples of potential story angles:

  • Land use issues and access to healthy food
  • Local and Indigenous heroes  and the power they bring to protecting the natural world
  • Impacts of environmental degradation and resource extraction on local communities
  • Health impacts of access—or lack of access—to urban green spaces
  • Solutions and ways in which countries with less material wealth are leading in mitigating plastic use or pollution
  • Examining the complex relationships many cultures have with nature
  • Climate-related forces driving people to migrate from their homes
  • Rural communities and their changing connection and access to nature

Projects that benefit local audiences or incorporate local voices are strongly encouraged. Additionally, storytellers with unique access or perspective to/on the proposed project because of their personal identity or experience with the community they propose to work with will have higher likelihood of funding. Applicants MUST have strong track records as storytellers (journalists, photographers, videographers, cartographers, etc.) and demonstrated publication success.
