Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is increasing the community’s understanding of the climate challenge by providing regular, accessible, evidence-based information from trusted sources.
A well-informed understanding of climate change and potential impacts enables individuals, communities, policy makers and other sectors to take practical action to support our transition to a low-carbon economy.
The Foundation’s support is focused on:
- Activities that effectively communicate the science and impacts of climate change .
- Activities that communicate the solutions and highlight the mitigation and adaptation opportunities, particularly those that demonstrate how the transition to net-zero emissions is technologically and economically viable.
- Projects that support the implementation of innovative local transition solutions that benefit the community.
The Foundation will consider other activities that address this outcome.
It is expected that these activities engage large numbers of people or specific sectors that are critical to effective mitigation or adaptation solutions.
The Foundation is strongly outcome oriented and seeks evidence of results. There is strong preference for evidence-based approaches that can demonstrate effective engagement and, where possible, can show that the community is reducing emissions or adapting to the changing climate as a result of the communication activity.
